A specimen of two half's, one as a pseudomorph after Azurite crystals, the other as unaltered Azurite.

On the unaltered side the sharply formed Azurite crystals are a fine deep royal blue colour measuring to 1.1cm, a band at the interface shows  partial replacement Azurite by Malachite. Both formed on a matrix of Cerussite and Smithsonite. Classic Tsumeb Mine Azurite replacement by Malachite.
