Locality: Kerrouchen, Khenifra, Morocco
Size:  3.5 x 2 x 1.5 cm
A floater, double terminated crystal of bright, lustrous Azurite.
The terminations at both ends are a series of jagged little points, and there is a
little alteration to Malachite as seen in the pics, that give it a nice color contrast.  
I acquired this in 1980, so it was probably mined in the late 70's
