Milpillas azurite is the finest available from anywhere in the world right now, and since the deposit was mined out in 2015, the material from there is now considered a true classic. This specimen is a conglomeration of several azurite crystals, terminated. The faces of the crystals are smooth and as bright and reflective as a mirror, and the edges and points are razor sharp. The color on this piece is a super-saturated navy blue, which comes alive as the faces flash brightly in the light. A few of the crystals feature tiny spheres of light blue azurite, which have grown right on the faces of a couple of the crystals (this is new to me for material from Milpillas). Underlying the azurite is a malachite matrix that is bright green and features chatoyant radiating crystals.
