SUPERB gem cluster of parallel-growth Azurite blades, with Calcite, from the famous mines at Lavrion. The color and luster are outstanding, with aesthetics that can't be beat. Really, you could hardly do better yourself if you tried to design a thumbnail with such simplicity and elegance. The pictures tell the whole story of this great thumbnail. A truly elegant and unusual azurite in any thumbnail collection!
