Salida, CO Elks Lodge Collection
The Elks Club in Salida, Colorado housed a display of several diverse mineral suites from Leadville, Bisbee, the Tri-State district and others, many with historic labels affixed to the specimens. The club decided to dispose of the collection, and we bought it this spring (2014).
This is rather a boxwork of azurite with the resulting voids covered in chalky green malachite, drusy blue azurite, or pale blue chalcoalumite depending on which pocket you’re looking at. A very good chalcoalumite/azurite association.
