This is a beautiful, colourful specimen, with blue azurite and some small spots of green malachite. The azurite crystals are thin blades, sharp, lustrous, translucent. In a couple of places the malachite is a pseudomorph after azurite. The specimen looks particularly good when mounted to stand as in the first photograph. In excellent condition – upon close inspection, with magnification one can see that some of the crystals are incomplete, but this is not apparent when looking at the piece in the display, at a normal viewing distance. This is a lot of deep intense blue sparkle.
