Azurite - Mineral Specimen
A secondary copper mineral frequently found in the oxidized zones of Cu-bearing ore deposits. Azurite is typically found as tabular to prismatic crystals of a deep "azure blue" color with splendent vitreous faces. There are over 45 well-known forms, and over 100 forms have been described. Azurite is often pseudo morphed to Malachite, and the two are very frequently found together. Azurite may be confused with (the very rare) Mrázekite. This specimen was sourced from Morocco.
