Specimen # 200405
Mineral: Azurite
Location: Bisbee, Warren District, Cochise Co., Arizona, USA
Size: 6.3 x 4.2 x 4.2 cm


This is a very 3-dimensional specimen, hard to represent in a photograph. It seems it was a floater of crystallized azurite in the gossan – it does not appear to have been attached. The piece is comprised of a myriad of small, intensely blue crystals. The crystals look super under light with magnification. Overall the specimen is in good condition – some areas are excellent, and other areas are incomplete.

An old specimen from the Pete Richards collection. He acquired it from Bill Cook, ex. James Stewart collection. Mr. Stewart’s grandfather, Harry Stewart, was a Bisbee miner and collector.  Harry’s son John was born in Bisbee in 1911.
