This Mexico Update includes great new specimens from a few localities. There are some super ones from the Milpillas Mine, with brochantite from the recent find, along with beautiful deep blue azurites and an eye-catching malachite pseudomorph after azurite. Also in this update are some sharp glassy datolites from Charcas, a gemmy danburite also from Charcas and a pretty smithsonite.
