A beautiful cluster of brilliant blue crystals of azurite is nicely offset by an accent of green malachite. In excellent condition – minor edge wear and incomplete at the back rear edge of the piece where it was attached. Asethetic with great, intense 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.
