Copper psm. Azurite
Copper Rose Mine, USA
Copper Rose Mine , San Lorenzo, Georgetown District, Grant Co., New Mexico, USA
A fantatsic psuedomorph of copper after an azurite rosette from the Copper Rose Mine Grant Co., New Mexico, USA! These superb pseudomorphs are among the most rare and coveted US psuedomorphs out there – most were collected many decades ago, going back to the days of George English, famed mineral dealer at the turn of the 20th century! This specimen is rather large for the material, and is very fine. The rosette is very well-defined and highly aesthetic. The psuedomorph is sharp and the copper has partially oxidized to a beautiful bright green color. The specimen developed as a floater, and has an alternate display angle on the backside – I just prefer this side. The crystals are large and undamaged. Comes with a custom acrylic base.
