Small Cabinet, 6.0 x 2.0 x 2.0 cm
Ex. Charlie Key
This is an exceptional, pristine specimen from a famous pocket, nicknamed the "Charlie Key pocket" at the time because he brought most of the specimens out. Recovering this from some dark hole it had languished in for the last 40 years or so, the Sussmans obtained it just this January, to complete their suite of azurites from the famous Tsumeb pockets. It has a riveting, deep electric blue color and glassy luster, but it is the symmetrical form that is most striking to me. Complete all around, too!6 x 2 x 2 cm
