From one of my previous posts, in this thread:

And recently, someone pointed out that the actual flakes in Azurite are blue - this is something I failed to notice previously, have concentrated more on the background blue colour.

There IS a difference, of course, between Jerez and Azurite. The difference is, to me, more than just academic. I have always been a stickler for details, and as such, I can appreciate the difference, and am very happy with it.

This past summer, my car was parked next to two Jerez black cars at a car show. There were 50+ people who commented on the Azurite positively, in comparison to the Jerez - that was cool, but at the end of the day, it's for me, and that suffices!
