At least 7 intersecting Azurite crystals make up this thumbnail specimen. These crystals reach lengths of up to 1.1 (2.9 cm) and are generally in very good condition, though a few are lightly damaged and one or two others are broken. All have exceptional monoclinic form with a nearly prismatic habit- their regularity of form is unusual. All show the standard azure-blue coloration and a vitreous luster, and are likely transparent; however, their depth of color renders them all but opaque under normal light. A small amount of malachite-coated host rock holds them together.
