This is just an outstanding little thumbnail with thin dark blue Azurite crystals to over 1cm perched on matrix. To get good reflections off the faces of the biggest crystal I used alot of intense light, which made the blue color more vivid than it appears in hand, the color is actually a very dark blue.
