About These Azurites

Although the copper deposits of the Democratic Republic of Congo have been famous for a long time, excellent crystallized azurite specimens are uncommon from the DRC (and have often been quite expensive). This lot is from a new find at Kibwi, located approximately 70 km northeast of Lubumbashi on the road to Likasi in Katanga.
