It formed near a large copper deposit in Utah where malachite and azurite crystallized in fractures on sandstone host rock. A reminder that sometimes "breaking open" leads to beautiful healing. Excess sandstone was removed as a slab was cut to show off spectacular patterns and colors in this gorgeous piece.
A persistent miner, Bill Harrison, worked the area for years before finding high quality azurite and malachite. He's diligent about leaving a small mining footprint and continuously improving the land he mines - by re-covering produced areas and re-planting vegetation.
So you can feel good about the good energy this malachite and azurite sandstone slabs bring you.
