SKU: Vault Azurite
Dimensions: 18.5 cm across
Bisbee is one of the true "American Classic" localities for mineral collecting, and azurite & malachite specimens is what made it famous. Bisbee was founded in 1880, and was named after Judge DeWitt Bisbee. He was a financial backer of the Copper Queen Mine. Copper mining continued here until Phelps Dodge Corp. closed the mine in 1975. Tourism keeps the town alive, and the mineral specimens keep it famous!
This azurite & malachite specimen is an impressive 18.5 cm wide and has an aesthetic array of azurite crystal clusters scattered across the matrix rock. There is also micro-crystalline malachite giving the specimen an added color dimension that gives the specimen visual balance. The quality of this specimen is rarely seen in the market today and would be a major addition to any collection.
The specimens condition is nearly pristine. The Collector's Edge Minerals is proud to offer this piece for sale. Please contact Steve Behling at 303-885-6885 or Richard Jackson at 303-918-5112 for more information about acquiring this piece.
