his is a secondary Copper mineral, formed in the oxidized zone of Copper deposits. Tsumeb has produced some spectacular Azurite specimens. Some of these have had rare and interesting associations with other minerals, making them rather sought-after specimens.
The Easter Pocket, a 80cm x 2m long pocket discovered in Easter 1994, produced some of the finest specimens.
Azurite can form in several different crystal habits; tabular, prismatic, cubed, or as radiating aggregates.
Associated minerals include Dolomite, Cupro-Adamite, Quartz, Duftite, Calcite, Wulfenite, Cerussite and Malachite.
