Bold and brilliant, yet intricately detailed, this Azurite cluster is stunning. The Azurites have the deep blue color with electric blue highlights, along with the superb luster, that Milpillas Azurites are renowned for. The 2.3 cm main crystal sits up like on a pedestal, and the surface has an amazingly detailed and eye-catching texture. The Malachite adds mineralogical and visual interest. In reality, this piece is complete all around 360 degrees and you could display this both ways, depending on your taste. Overall, the aesthetics and quality are excellent. Even for a mine which has produced so much in the last 8 years, before tapering off, this stands out.
