This is a beautiful and somewhat unusual specimen of azurite. The crystals are arranged in partial rosettes - all that is visible is stacked triagular terminations that give a curved appearance to the cluster. The individual crystals are opaque and have such a deep blue color that they are nearly black. The center of the cluster has a patch of red-brown limonite with a dusting of green malachite.
