At least 20 Lazulite blades rest on the gray base rock of this hand specimen. These crystals are in very good condition, showing little damage, and have good monoclinic form. They have the standard deep azure-blue color with a slightly greenish tinge and a vitreous luster, and are transparent but so dark as to be rendered translucent even in bright sunlight. They rest on a bed of tiny arrojadite and siderite crystals and are accompanied by several very small quartz prisms.
