A cluster of very vibrant blue azurite crystals, this specimen appears to have formed as a floater. In excellent condition, minor edge wear and chipping visible with magnification. Lustrous azurite with great colour.
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.
