This eye-catching Azurite specimen was mined in 2013 from a special small pocket discovered in the Sepon Mine in Laos and nothing similar came out since then, especially in this level of crystallization and quality, this really stands out. The lustre is vitreous giving it almost a “wet look”, exceptional! Azurite found with this crystallographic habitus is very rare, and this particular piece displays rosette type of formation which creates a nice visual counterpoint. It is mesmerizing and very attractive in person. Comes with a high quality acrylic display box.
