This thumbnail specimen consists of a cluster of heavily-intergrown Lazulite crystals that rest on a basalt base. The crystals are in moderately good condition, as several are damaged, and have a very warped triclinic form, likely due to their intense intergrowth. All have the classic deep, azure-blue color that renders them nearly opaque and a bright, vitreous luster.
