SOLD
A complete floater specimen, chock-full of terminated blocky azurite crystals all around. The color is a vivid blue, not as dark as most Tsumeb azurite. It has a long history of being in famous collections including Stan Alexander, who sold to Dave Wilber in the early 1970s, who then sold it in the 1980's to Keith Proctor who held it until the Sussmans obtained it from him. It has one very clean repair at the bottom-right, otherwise it is pristine. This is a truly fine display specimen, as witnessed by the chain of owners over 30 years. 8 x 7 x 5 cm
