A beautiful, 1.2 cm, electric-blue cluster of linarite crystals surrounded by tiny, glassy leadhillite crystals aesthetically set on the sharp point of matrix from Arizona. In fact, the matrix is NEARLY SOLID, glassy leadhillite! The piece is hefty for its size - heavy lead. Ex. John Baum and George Elling Collections.
