A sharp, highly lustrous, 1.6 cm, tabular, royal-blue, azurite crystal is attractively nestled in a vug adjacent to smaller azurite crystals (some pseudomorphing to malachite) and starkly contrasting, olive-brown, goethite balls. The large azurite is doubly terminated and has only super-trivial edgewear. Unusual, highly representative, old-time combination material from the Dennis Mullane Bisbee Collection.
