This specimen is a classic example of the well known and highly sought after pseudomorphs of Malachite after Azurite. This cabinet size specimen features a few sharp, blocky, well-formed, isolated minty green color crystals measuring up to 2.2 cm which are sitting on a gossan-esque matrix with minor Calcite rhombs. The pseudomorphs are in great condition, and truly the piece looks better in person than the photos might indicate.
