We should definitely start an Azurite S34 thread!
Thanks Azurite90M! The pictures of your car helped me and I would like to pay it forward by creating a thread for that color shortly. Btw, in case you didn't know, your thread also inspired another soon-to-be class of 2013 member - Koop!

Good luck and have fun with it
Twinbo, I remember your car. Looking forward to seeing your next car!

Either way, it looks great.

Yup, as Azurite90M said. It's close but not the same. Azurite has these sparkly pigments in it.

You know how Jerez Black and Jet Black wouldn't look the same under showroom/sun-light? I would say there would be a similar degree of difference with Azurite. The 'tone' is not quite the same either. Jerez definitely has blue but it also has a bit of lilac in its composition, so that mixture gives it a perhaps a little bit more of a blue-violet tone. A special and unique mixture in itself.

EDIT: Here is a pic of the sparkles that is well captured:
