North Gate Dumps,
This specimen is essentially a very dense mass of small, lustrous dark blue azurite crystals with some minor green malachite also present.
Unfortunately specimens like this are seldom recovered from the locality these days given the amount of redevelopment that has taken place.
This specimen was collected back in the late 1990’s from the North Gate dumps, which are unfortunately now the site of a new power station!
