    Description

    Azurite & Cerussite
    Broken Hill Proprietary Mine, Broken Hill, Broken Hill district, Yancowinna Co., New South Wales, Australia

    "A cluster of sharp shiny dark blue azurite crystals to about 2 cm with minor cerussite growing on the azurite. I got this specimen from Earl Calvert's collection when I sold the collection for the family many years after the family [sic] died. Good azurites from Australia are very difficult to get."
    - Rock H. Currier

    He's right: they are difficult to get. Most anybody who has one knows that the supply is limited to what can be pried out of other people's collections and fingers. Want one? Pry it out from Rock's collection.

    Offered at no reserve

    Provenance: Ex. Earl Calvert Collections [RHC #6994, acquired 1990]
