Azurite, Shilee Mine, Guandong Province, China
description: 3" tall. Ex Robert Sielecki collection. I bought it from Robert in early 2013. Several hundred specimens from this locality appeared on the international mineral market during the late 1980's. This piece shows the most intense blue and has the highest luster that I have seen on azurite from this locality. I have seen substantially larger pieces which had no luster but were priced in the five figures. Pieces of this size and quality are very highly regarded by collectors of Chinese mineral specimens and quite a few collectors with specialized Chinese collectors are part of the modern mineral specimen market.
