And here's Snoopy!

Sometimes it pays to have imagination and a sense of humour. This specimen has a couple of azurite crystals sitting atop a malachite sphere, with tiny minor cuprite. Photo width is 4mm.

However, I also see Snoopy from Peanuts sitting there, probably having been downed by the Red Baron!
