The price of Azurite versus the price of Azurite

Collectors of stamps are familiarized with the French term Tirage which is used , say in an International way, and
means the Number of copies of stamp-sets printed once ( In Auflage von Briefmarken ist die Anzahl der Kopien
einmal gedruckt).
Stamps are issued by man.
Small tirage of stamps is usually issued by small Countries , hence the stamps of these Countries are rarer and as
rarer have a higher value than stamps of big tirage , usually issued by big Countries.
Let s get now on tirage of azurite specimens.
Azurite specimens are issued by mother Earth.
The price of an azurite specimen depends on a number of factors such as well shape and form of crystals (not
broken) , number of crystals , size of crystals, size of azurite crystal cluster , inclusions , pseudomorphosis , luster ,
to mention some of them. Collectors do not take into consideration the size of the azurite deposit where the
specimen(s) came from or the degree of inaccessibility to the azurite deposit.
People who come in our mineral , gem and fossil shop downtown Piraeus ask among other specimens and
gemstones from Greece nice azurite specimens from Lavrion. When they choose the azurite specimen they like ,
they ask on its price. When I say the price , some of them they comment : Oh ! We can buy an equivalent azurite
specimen from Bisbee , Morenci, Arizona , USA ,in half of your price. As I claim I have reasonable prices , I comment
in my turn: Please keep in mind that azurite specimen(s) from Bisbee , Morenci, Arizona , USA come from a big
deposit , while azurite specimen(s) from Lavrion come from some veins in a small deposit . In other words the
tirage of azurite specimens from Lavrion is smaller than the tirage of azurite specimens from Arizona. I would
respect an equivalent azurite specimen from Greenland or from the Moon (if azurite existed there) would cost
more than an azurite specimen from an easily reached area. For equivalent azurite specimens , collectors do not
take usually into consideration the tirage and the inaccessibility .
The same way of thinking [tirage and inaccessibility] could also be valid for other mineral specimens in relation
with their price.

The meteorite is a celestial body that is attracted by Earth's gravity and falls to the surface without
completely dissolved in the atmosphere. Meteorites arouse great interest because of their rarity and
because our knowledge of the Universe has been greatly extended through space exploration. General
meteorites classified into three main categories, depending on the percentage iron content
A. Lithometeorites or Aerolite Meteorites (percentage of iron 1%).Lithometeorites are classified in
chondrites and achondrites.
.Lithometeorites or Siderolithometeorites and
C. Siderometeorites (Ironmeteorites) with percentage of iron higher than 50%.
