ID: CC16707
A simple yet unusual and aesthetic small miniature of Azurite on Calcite from the Lavrion Mining District in the Attica peninsula of Greece.  A single, double terminated blade of lustrous inky-blue Azurite measuring 2.6 x 1.4 x 0.4 cm protrudes diagonally from one end of a small plate of bubbly, botryoidal Calcite, tinged pale sky-blue by finely-disseminated copper secondaries.  Micro-sprays of blueish-green Malachite are sparsely scattered over the limonitic-coated reverse side of the Calcite.
