need help identifying this one. It is a brown rock with greenish blue on it. Came in a baggie with some turquoise I bought at a yard salealt text, but wasn't sure if that is correct. Please help if you can.

Hard to tell - but definitely looks like a secondary copper mineral. See if you can post a large, more zoomed-in picture.

Hi,

I'm wandering about the blue color; is it like azurite blue? Or more like a turquoise?

I think I even see some green.

Just maybe (and I say maybe) a rough azurite malachite?
