Item Description

A highly lustrous, royal-blue to midnight-blue, blocky compound azurite crystal is nicely accented with calcite and a bit of malachite on this showy thumbnail from Tsumeb. Complete all-around, with only a bit of contacting. This cutie has brilliant "electric-blue" flashes of gemminess under strong light. Classic material. Ex Robert Whitmore Collection.
