This beautiful specimen consists of a complete Azurite "flower"; I suppose one could call it a rosette. It consists of an aggregate of radiating bladed crystals that emanate from a central point or line. It has no damage, and shows exceptional form that actually looks quite a bit like a flower's bloom! Its color is a dark royal-to-navy blue, and it has a rather dull pearly luster. The rosette is opaque, showing only dim translucence through the exposed blades on its edges. BesiAZU-9
