    It is easy to understand why the natural combination of Azurite and Malachite would be stunning. This massive ornamental box displays outstanding color and patterning. Azurite and Malachite are Copper minerals and, over time, have naturally formed among other subtle earthy tones. With this, bright blue Azurite "rivers" exist in harmony with patches of green Malachite. The lid and sides have been painstakingly book-matched for added appeal. The inside of this decorative box is lined with black stone and accented with a gold-plated piano hinge for easy access. The bottom is made of the same black stone and has rubber feet.
    Overall Measurements: 8.87 x 6.00 x 2.87 inches (22.52 x 15.24 x 7.28 cm)

    Provenance: Central Coast Collection

    [Scale: 1 inch, with mark at 1 cm]
