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).

The rich blue of the botryoidal azurite on this plate contrasts nicely with the rather powdery green malachite. I’m not positive this is from Morenci, but black friable matrix and the style of malachite make it seem more likely to me than Bisbee.
