Azurite & Malachite
Liufengshan Mine, Guichi Dist., Chizhou Pref
8 x 5.5 x 4.2 CM (cabinet)
Bright colors, well-crystallized and in excellent condition, this is far better than most Chinese Azurites. Ex Shields Flynn collection, the luster and structure is similar to some Milpillas specimens, but with careful examination the Anhui "look" is seen. Very three dimensional and with a rich wet look that is very eye-catching.
