Item Description

Densely intergrown, exceptionally lustrous, lozenge-shaped azurite crystals with chisel terminations, to about 1.5 cm, form a sculptural and aesthetic small cabinet matrix plate from recent finds at now-famous Milpillas. The azurites appear to be royal-blue to navy-blue to midnight-blue under normal light, BUT glow with electric-blue color under bright light. The interior is pristine on this classic example of this varietal and the noted periphery is certainly acceptable. Valued at $500. Get a good one, while you can. These are considered to be some the world's finest azurites.
