ID: CC10525
A mixed matrix of crystalline Azurite, Malachite and probable Duftite is almost completely covered with choice crystals of Azurite from the Tsumeb mine in Namibia. The Azurites are an opaque, glassy deep blue and in transmitted light show a very thin translucent electric-blue rim.  All the crystals have sharp chisel terminations and have developed in parallel arrays, all leaning slightly to the right of vertical.  When viewed from the back, all the Azurite crystals have a matt, mid blue powdery surface, completely different to when viewed from the display side.  All the Azurite crystals are of a good size, the largest measuring approximately 2.5 x 1.7 x 0.3 cm. One crystal at the far right of the display side is slightly damaged.  An excellent example of Azurite from Tsumeb, one of the species for which this mine first became world famous.
