3.9 x 3.8 x 3.8 cm. This is a fine miniature. It is a huge azurite crystal for the locality, very 3-dimensional, showing partial alteration to chatoyant, beautiful, bright-green malachite. This combination has given this specimen a contrast which enhances the vivid electric colors. The largest crystal measures 3.5 cm across. A truly fine and colorful specimen but a significant locality piece and a significant miniature, as well. Ex. Dr. Eugene Meieran and Bill Borden Collections.
