Item Description

A lovely Azurite specimen from one of the most classic localities in all of Europe! Typically the Azurite specimens from Chessy are found in less than desirable examples, but this piece is an actual GROUP of sharp, very well defined, lustrous, midnight blue, Azurite crystals forming a lovely "rosette". It is very difficult for collectors to obtain fine quality specimens of this material today, and the fact that this piece is a complet "rosette" makes even more desirable. A great specimen for any collector, a collector of European classics, or anyone who appreciates Azurite. From the worldwide thumbnail / miniature collection of Irv Brown.
