Description:Glorious, scintillating, "electric-blue" azurite blades nearly cover the front of this rich and sculptural combination Tsumeb specimen. These blades glow with gemminess under just about any light. Rare, light green arsentsumebite (Type Locality) fringes the front and richly covers the back. The back also hosts scattered, small reticulated cerussite crystals. Combination specimens of azurite in this richness and high quality with arsentsumebite are very uncommon. Excellent combination material from the Willy Israel Collection and purchased in 1989.
