avatar Azurite crystals - need locality
June 22, 2012 09:12PM
Attached is a photo of an 5.5-cm-wide aggregate of azurite crystals. Came from an old collection, the owner passed away and there is no label, I suspect it is from Arizona. Would like to nail down a locality so the photo can go to mindat gallery and the eventual owner can appreciate where it is from. It looks similar to this specimen
so I suspect it is from Morenci.

It does look like typical azurite from Morenci, but you really can't rule out many of the other localities
