Miniature, 3.8 x 3.4 x 1.9 cm
What can I say about this wonderful azurite mini that the picture doesn't say? It is obviously just a super specimen, in many ways. First, the crystals are sharp, elongated prisms, perfectly terminated. They also are aesthetically positioned at the center of the sparing matrix in a really pleasing arrangement. And, the luster is superb. The longest crystal measures 2 cm, running through the middle of the specimen. There is one broken-off crystal at the lower part of the display side but as you can see, it does not really detract much at all.
