Item Description

Sparkly, chatoyant, multi-hued, green, acicular, primary malachite forms a striking, elongated, cupped flower aestheticaly perched on a stalk of starkly contrasting, pretty powder-blue, botryoidal shattuckite on this very fine, sculptural and showy specimen from recent finds in the Kaokoveld. Part of the base has been sawed to enhance the considerable display and the piece rests well without aid. Choice material from Charlie Key dealer stock.
