Milpillas has produced some of the most beautiful Azurite specimens in recent time. Here's 3-dimensional cabinet size matrix specimen with dark, highly lustrous, blue crystals. The Azurite actually covers the top of the matrix and crystals grew over the edge on one side. The opposite side shows green Malachite coverage. Only very minor contact to the Azurite crystals, most of which is natural wall contact. An excellent example.
