´╗┐Azurite

Azurite Description...Azurite occurs as very fine albeit small(1-3mm) crystals, which were measured, described and extensively illistrated of Palache(1928, 1935).The abundant crystal drawings should not be indication of abundant azurite; it was uncommon locally. Azurite is deep blue, although light blue films have been verified from Sterling Hill. No physical, optical, or chemical data exists for local specimans.
