An interesting, shockingly bright azurite specimen featuring a round ball surface from one point of view, and a glittering, sugary coating of azurite from the other side. The internal side shows off a surface of azurite microcrystals that appear to have grown inside an open azurite ball-shaped growth, perhaps a concretion (similar to the Aussie specimens). The outside is velvety. The specimen seems to be natural, not broken open, but rather formed and found this way.
