TG27AF8: Elongated, flattened and doubly terminated Azurite crystals, very rich in faces, extraordinarily bright with intense reflections and transparences under a bright light, and with the deep and vivid color (“electric blue”) typical of the best samples from Milpillas. The sample is of the best possible quality, both for the species and for the locality.
Milpillas Mine, Cuitaca, Municipio Santa Cruz, Sonora  Mexico (2015)

Specimen size: 9.2 × 6.6 × 4.1 cm = 3.6” × 2.6” × 1.6”

Main crystal size: 3.2 × 1.2 cm = 1.3” × 0.5”

EB77AF8: Group of very sharp and flattened crystals with the dominant faces of a rhombohedron, with very well defined faces and edges and a clearer color than usual for the Chessy pieces. The sample is from recent and surprising finds at the old dumps area at that mine.
Chessy-les-Mines, Les Bois d'Oingt, Villefranche-sur-Saône, Rhône, Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes  France (2010)

TM26AF8: Druse of rhombohedral Azurite crystals with polycrystalline growths and a very vivid color and luster on matrix with fibrous Malachite that has a silky luster. The sample, from a not well-known collection, is very old and has the characteristics of the Azurites that were from the “Mine bleue,” typical of the XIX century.
Chessy-les-Mines, Les Bois d'Oingt, Villefranche-sur-Saône, Rhône, Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes  France

Specimen size: 9.4 × 6.6 × 2.6 cm = 3.7” × 2.6” × 1.0”

EM48AF8: Group, on matrix, of octahedral Alabandite crystals that have their vertices truncated by cube faces and that show very well the Spinel-law twin. The length of the main crystal, clearly dominant, is extraordinary and it is unquestionably one of the largest ever found.
Uchucchacua Mine, level 300, ↓895m., Oyón Province, Lima Department  Peru (2010)

Specimen size: 5.2 × 4.6 × 3.6 cm = 2.0” × 1.8” × 1.4”
