This is an outstanding Tsumeb azurite. A cluster of steeply-terminated crystals nestled perfectly on the matrix. The crystals are a gorgeous deep azure-blue – under strong light, the intense colour is seen in the outer areas of the large crystal, while the smaller crystals appear to be fully translucent-to-transparent. These azurite crystals are sharp with top lustre. There are small surface growths of malachite in association.
From the Gerald Panneton collection. In excellent condition, virtually pristine (under magnification, a couple of rubs are visible). A killer Tsumeb azurite!
