AZURITE DRUZY 925 STERLING SILVER JEWELLERY
This is a very uncommon treasure. Druzy gemstones are microscopic mineral crystals that grew inside or on the surface of another mineral. Azurite is a gemstone-quality copper ore that is extremely rare. One of two fundamental copper carbonate minerals is azurite (malachite is the other). Azurite is more valuable than malachite since it is more scarce. Azurite is a deep blue copper mineral that forms when copper ore deposits weather. Because azurite's blue is so deep and clear, it's often connected with the deep blue color of low-humidity desert and winter skies.
