ID: CC8245
Blocky intergrown Azurite crystals form an inverted T-shaped specimen from the Tsumeb mine.  The Azurite occurs in a number of vivid shades of azure blue, ranging from a highly lustrous inky royal-blue to a lighter and beautiful steely-sapphire-blue.  The Azurite crystals have flat pinacoid terminations and the specimen is punctuated all over by small patches of earthy, pale green Malachite.  A great Tsumeb Azurite that can be displayed from either side, but with two quite different appearances because of the change in colour.
