Killer lustrous single crystal, quite self-explanatory on a first look, that this stands out from others. The specimen has the electric blue coating over shimmering malachite, and is from the "Electric Blue pocket" in fact - a single pocket in 2009. The blue is stunning. the shape is riveting. It is just an exceptional thumbnail from anywhere, but particularly from here.
