Sadly, My Hubby had to make a quick trip back to his home state of Texas to attend his grandmother's funeral. She was an amazing woman of 93 and is very much missed by her family. The up side of the trip was that he was able to visit with his grandfather (94), aunt, uncle and lots of cousins. He also made of few side trips to some "Rock Shops", this Azurite in matrix is one of the goodies he brought back home. Love the colors in this stone!!!
