Brochantite, Malachite
Cabinet, 14.0 x 12.8 x 6.8 cm
Bou Bekker (Bou Becker), Touissit, Touissit District, Oujda-Angad Province, Oriental Region, Morocco
A fine cabinet specimen of sculptural, terraced vugs filled with sparkly, forest-green brochantite microcrystals and lighter green malachite. Each vug has a different character, which really adds to the striking nature of the piece. The starkly contrasting variable shades of sturdy gossan matrix really adds character to this striking piece from Bou Bekker, Morocco. Old material from the late 1980s, not seen from here since that time.
