Azurite-on-Tetrahedrite with Quartz

specimen number:
9501515

location:
La Gardette Mine, Bourg d'Oisans, Isere, Auvergne-Rhone-Alps, France

description:
This famous old French locality began in the early 17th century for what was called rock crystal extraction. It was operated briefly for gold, and then only worked by local prospectors for mineral specimens. The mine was completely closed up in 2005. While mostly known for its outstanding quartz, rarely seen on the market over the years are the famous azurite coated tetrahedrite samples. this example is outstanding with an extremely large sharp crystal of tetrahedrite, this coated by blue azurite with minor green malachite, and a gemmy quartz crystal 1.8 cm in height coming off the top. In great condition all around. Very rare.
