Item Description

What a showy and just plain cute specimen of Malachite from the prolific Tsumeb Mine. This toenail sized piece features a handful of velvety, beautiful rich green colored, radial aggregates of Malachite, measuring up to 1.3 cm across, aesthetically sitting on matrix. Primary malachite from tsumeb is rare as opposed to replacement after azurite. You can display the piece in a way that really looks nice, though you would need either a custom base or at least some mineral tack to position it correctly. Although Malachite isn't rare from Tsumeb, it's not easy to find such eye-catching display specimens like this. Priced at $750 in our inventory.
