Several intergrown clusters of heavily worn Azurite prisms make up this small hand specimen. The largest complete crystal that I can see has a length of 1.3" (3.3 cm). All appear to be in excellent condition- there is only a small amount of fresh damage visible on the piece. All of the crystals are badly weathered, and thus their monoclinic prismatic forms, while still quite discernable, are not very well-defined. The weathering has also affected their color, which has faded in most places from an azure- to a deep royal-blue, and their luster, which is dulled to a bright pearly. They are also opaque and are partly covered with a thin crust of a dull, rust-stained material that I cannot identify.
