Item Description

A classic and excellent Tsumeb azurite specimen. The highly lustrous crystals are midnight-blue, but have many areas of highly desirable "electric-blue" gemminess. The backlit photo really highlights the gorgeous blue gemmy edges of the monolithic-style crystal. The smaller crystals at the base provide a fine compliment. Complete all-around and nearly pristine, with only a trivial bit of egde wear on one edge of the large crystal. Valued at $1500-1750. The luster of the striated faces is striking. Ex Howard Belsky Collection.
