Item Description

A stunning, sculptural slice of polished malachite "eyes" from one of the famous copper mines of the Democratic Republic of Congo. Both sides of this slab have beautiful form and dramatic concentric color bands. We do not buy many of these, but this was a very choice piece. The banding variation from front to back is striking on this slab.
