ID: CC2117
A superb stellate burst of bladed, tabular Azurite crystals from the classic French location of Chessy. The Azurite crystals are a very deep blue, with lighter drusy areas to the central parts of the crystals.  Some of the Azurite crystals exhibit a 'saw-tooth' habit, gradually curving towards their termination.  The underside of the specimen shows the typical creamy clay matrix on which the Azurite has grown.  This is a very attractive Azurite from Chessy-les-Mines, a location famed for such specimens and the type locality of Azurite.
