Recent finds from the Milpillas Mine are among the best azurites from any locality. In this case the color is a beautifully deep cobalt blue and the luster is superb. Crystal structure is complex. Displays very nicely. Incomplete along one edge where removed from matrix. One very clean repair, which is why this specimen is not twice the price. Previous dealer label with $500 price.
