Identity HelpAzurite from Australia location help

9th Oct 2019 16:14 BSTBrian Gray

I have a specimen of Azurite (with some Malachite) from "Australia" and purchased @ 1973.  That is all I know.  The matrix is a fine grained, white sandstone.  I can find noting that exactly matches in the Mindat photos.  The closest thing I found is a photo from Rob Lavinsky from "Shuttleton, Mouramba, N.S.W., Australia".

I hope someone can give me a better location or a confirmation of above !

Hi Brian-your specimen reminds me of the Monakoff Mine ( about 30k NW of Cloncurry Queensland) pieces that I have.
