This impressive thumbnail specimen consists of many large, curved Azurite blades that make up at least 2 incomplete round aggregates. The aggregates show no human-induced damage and the visible poritions of each crystal show very good form, with well-defined edges and clean faces that show a pearly, almost vitreous luster. They have a deep blue coloration and are opaque to all intents and purposes. Scattered on the aggregates' surfaces are several tiny botryoidal globules of malachite. All are weathered and rust-stained and show no luster and a faded green color. There is also what appears to be a small amount of AZU-18
