Milpillas Mine, Cuitaca, Mun. de Santa Cruz, Mexico
8.5 cm tall
During the past 4 years one of the greatest finds of azurites has come out of Milpillas Mine in Mexico. What is not so well known is that this mine also produced a few excellent malachite and copper specimens. This specimen qualifies as one of the best malachites to come from this locality. Beautiful color. One large half sphere with two smaller half spears combine to make a unique presentation.
