Sparkling, Drusy Azurite (Wholesale Lot) - 44 Pieces

While we are almost exclusively a retail seller of fossils and minerals, on occasion acquire large quantities of certain material at steep discounts to typical wholesale prices. This leaves us with an excess amounts of certain types of material or items we don't typically sell. We are in the process of listing a limited quantity of this material for sale at wholesale prices by the box, flat or weight.

This is a wholesale flat of vibrant, drusy azurite and malachite crystals on matrix from Morocco. There are 44 pieces in total ranging from 1" to 2.5" wide. The majority of these specimens display more azurite than malachite, however malachite can be found sporadically around most of the matrixes.

Azurite and Malachite are known to form in union with each other, for their chemical makeup is very similar. In fact, the presence of more or less water in the location of formation, is enough to determine whether an abundance of malachite over azurite, or vise-versa, will accumulate.

These minerals tend to be found near copper deposits, which accounts for the colors the minerals display. This association of azurite and malachite on copper rich, iron oxide matrix was found near M'Cissi, Alnif, Tinghir Province, Souss-Massa-Draâ Region, Morocco.
