Anhui Province, China
Cabinet, 14.9 x 14.7 x 14.4 cm
This is a very large pocket (vug) of deep blue, sparkly azurite crystals, extracted INTACT from the mine - just a real showstopper of a mineral specimen, and NOT something you see very often! The pocket is open at the front and back, and there is a "window" on top as well, allowing the light in to light up the crystals. Better in person, as you get a much better view of the crystal-lined interior - the pics show a lot of air when in fact the pocket is several inches deep so most of what you see from the display side is crystals. 14.9 x 14.7 x 14.4cm
