Azurite - Photo # 2
description: <p style="text-align: justify;">2" across <br /><br />This wonderful azurite miniature is probably one of the most sculptural specimens of azurite in existence. It resembles a butterfly. One vertice has suffered a little damage. All of the surfaces on the reverse side of this piece are planer crystal faces. Unlike most specimens of Sepon Mine azurite, this one is not a malachite pseudomorph after azurite with an azurite veneer over the pseudomorph. Hence, "The Butterfly" is dark-blue instead of neon-blue. <br />  <br />This piece was acquired from a primary source supplier in mid 2013.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"> </p> <p style="text-align: justify;">This photo was achieved by using Adobe Photoshop to edit the other image that appears in this album.  The edited photo does not show any white spots on the crystal faces but the color is brighter blue and the edited photo is afflicted by a yellowish cast on part of the azurite.  <br />  <br />Photo by Matthew Webb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia    <br /> </p>
