Azurite with Brochantite from Milpillas Mine from Milpillas Mine, Sonora, Mexico; Raw Natural Mineral Specimen; Azurite and Brochantite


Azurite with Brochantite from the Milpillas Mine, Cuitata, Municipio de Cananea, Sonora, Mexico

This is a fantastic combo specimen of stellar Azurite crystals sitting amongst a field of Brochantite from the famed Milpillas Mine in Sonora, Mexico. This specimen displays vivid electric blue crystals of Azurite and has green Brochantite creeping it's way across the surface of the matrix. A rare Milpillas combo!

Azurite from the Milpillas Mine is already considered one of the most important discoveries of high quality mineral specimens ever found. Now that mining of the surface oxide zone which contains the azurite has ceased (the mine is now converting to process the solid chalcocite orebody beneath), these great azurites will never be mined from this locale again. Like other finds that have come and gone in the past, NOW is the time to buy, as the value of these specimens will only increase.

Milpillas azurites have an inner glow, a magical electrifying blue color that spontaneously tells the viewer that you are looking upon something truly extraordinary. It truly is a once-in-a-lifetime experience to have witnessed the world’s finest azurite specimens as they were freshly removed from the earth. Milpillas will be spoken of by all future generations of collectors as the mine that produced the world’s most vivid and spectacular azurites.
