Item Description

Very pretty and striking, arborescent clusters of chatoyant, velvet malachite cover all sides of this dramatic, LARGE CABINET, old-timer cored with copper from the famous mines at Bisbee. Ex Dennis Mullane Bisbee Collection. Rich and very showy copper ore! Hefty at 4.0 pounds or 1.8 kilos. This rich chatoyant malachite is highly valued by the locals, and I have seen similar for sale, as carving and lapidary rough alone, for around $1000. MUCH, MUCH BETTER IN PERSON.
