Comment: There has been about a twenty five year gap in the availability of azurite specimens from this locality. The azurite suns form between layers of kaolinitic clay. The aggregate was forced to grow in a laterally compressed, radiating manner. This specimen has two suns with the largest diameter being 3.6cm. A good example of the specimens from this locality.
