A crust made up of countless small, intersecting Azurite crystals rests on the dull, green base rock of this hand specimen. These crystals do not exceed 0.3" (8 mm) in length and are generally in good condition, though a few areas show obvious damage. They generally have excellent monoclinic bladed form and the azure-blue color and vitreous luster that are common for their specie. All are likely transparent and clear, but their intense color makes this difficult to study the larger crystals under normal light.
