A rich crust of brilliant azure-blue linarite crystals covers about 30% of the surface of this large cabinet specimen. The crystals are acicular, radiating on a flat plane. The crystals are tiny, but with a loupe, one can observe them (the best views of individual crystals are at the edge of the crust). There are a couple of dings on this specimen, overall, though, the damage is minor.
