A classic and emmediately recognisable specimen of these unique flattened discs of azurite  embedded in a kaolinite matrix from the Malbunka Copper mine.

These extraordinary bright azure blue discs, or 'suns' as they are occasionally known, look striking against that creamy white background and never fail to impress.

 

An eyecatching specimen, showing  the main sun and with several smaller 'satellite suns. The largest disc / sun is approximately 28mm across.
