Deep blue Azurite and green Malachite after Azurite crystals from Chessy. This is a good sized specimen for the locality with great crystals all over, including a bridge of crystals. Comes with old Harvard Mineral Museum labels that dates the specimen back to at least 1976, but specimens have been found here since the 1800s and this could be significantly old than that. An excellent Chessy Azurite.
