Novo Horizonte, Bahia, Northeast Region, Brazil
Small Cabinet, 9.2 x 8.9 x 2.7 cm
This is a large, pretty and rich specimen of something you just do not see around much - azurite from Brazil! These specimens of sparkly microcrystals with bumpy rounded forms came out for a short time, were snapped up, and then disappeared. This one came out of the recently-dispersed collection of William Hiss. What is nice about these is that the color is truly blue, and not so dark that they appear blackish.
