A superb, 3-dimensional piece with riveting almost-metallic luster and incredible color! The crystal is among the most chunky and well-formed I have ever seen for a primary malachite crystal from the locality. Primary malachite is ORIGINAL malachite crystallization, as opposed to being a replacement of azurite which is how most big malachite crystals from Tsumeb arise. A piece of rare quality, BETTER In PERSON!
