The mineral specimens below were formerly misidentified as "Chrysocolla over Malachite pseudomorphs after Azurite."
Recent analysis of the find by the University of Arizone identified these as Ajoite -- not Chrysocolla.

This makes this find the first aesthetic, displayable cabinet specimens of Ajoite.

Formerly the only ajoite specimens available were cloudy blue inclusions inside quartz crystals.
The three specimens below were selected for the best color and condition from the find (many others had less intense blue color and looked washed out).
These are the only three specimens I have from the find.

Ajoite over Malachite pseudomorphs after Azurite from Luputo Mine, Lubumbashi, Katanga (Shaba) Province, Democratic Republic of the Congo
