Description

A very unique old collection find. A very long double-terminated azurite crystal - glossy and translucent. In the middle starting to be replaced by malachite. It looks a bit 'chewed on', but has no real damage or even chipping. I haven't seen anything similar before.

Translucent and looking great with backlight.

Comes with a very old label from the Freiberg university sale department.
