9500208) Azurite with Malachite - Kerrouchene, Khenifra Province, Meknes-Tafilalet Region, Morocco
Size: 9.0 x 6.0 x 5.0 cm (small cabinet)
Price: $ 1250
An excellent matrix combination piece for this locality! A lustrous grouping of parallel dark blue terminated azurite crystals measuring 4.0 x 2.0 x 1.5 cm in size is set aesthetically upon a 9.0 x 6.0 x 5.0 cm matrix. There is a grouping of acicular green malachite crystals measuring 3.5 cm in length on one side of this matrix. There is an area of natural contacting at the upper right corner of the azurite grouping; in the same area, along the vertical edge, is very light chipping. All of this is visible in the photos. I think that, overall, this is in excellent condition damage-wise.
