Rare. Open pit, and upper portion of the first oxidation zone.
- 1st Oxidation Zone
Paragenetic and General Notes
A very rare mineral at depth, but more common in the near surface environment (due to lower pCO2), where it occurred in a paragenesis with hemimorphite and hydrozincite. Less commonly in association with smithsonite.
Aurichalcite has been reported to form pseudomorphs after azurite (rare; Weber, 1977).
