The dark blue color of this azurite specimen is typical of the world-class azurite specimens that came out of the Milpillas Mine when it was still producing. These crystals, which grew in a vug in the matrix, are sharply terminated and have brilliant wet-look luster. There is also some lovely green malachite on the piece, which is formed as fibrous crystals, and is colored a rich, iridescent green. The azurite and malachite are in a vein that runs through the matrix, and the piece displays nicely.
