Azurite is a very popular mineral to collect. Azurite is found world wide associated with copper deposits. Very fine large azurites can command a king's ransom.  The Smithsonian Institution's mineral collection is now available online.  It is a little hard to maneuver but start on the Azurite page ( and you will quickly learn their system.  Be sure to go to the gem galleries (gems).  The gemstones are incredible, after all they do have the Hope Diamond.

Well here is my meager,yet cute, little Blue Jay Pit, La Sal, Utah Azurite on Malachite thumbnail specimen.
