This Azurite specimen consists of a piece of a finely-grained red-brown sandstone host rock that has a rather large, deep crevice extending into it. This crevice is lined with a thin crust of a white, amorphous substance, on which dozens of small Azurite crystals are tightly clustered. They are all in generally good condition due to their lack of exposure, though there are small pockets and veins of the crystals elsewhere on the host rock that are damaged. All have moderately good monoclinic prismatic form, though there is substanAZU-14
