A unique and exceptional example of an Azurite epimorph (epimorph: A hollow shell, or mold, left by a mineral that had overgrown an initial mineral which has dissolved away. Mindat.org). By looking inside the hollow shell, it’s clear that the original crystal was a Calcite Scalenohedra before geologic events caused the Calcite to gradually dissolve, leaving behind a perfect Azurite mold. A truly exceptional piece in excellent condition.
