Thumbnail, 5.2 x 4.9 x 3.0 cm
A HIGHLY UNCOMMON and striking combination piece from the famous Sweet Home Mine. Bright green malachite coats well-crystallized, lustrous tetrahedrite crystals to 2.0 cm. Beautifully contrasting transparent to frosted purple fluorite cubes to 4 mm add to the panache of this piece. There is also a few tiny rhodochrosite crystals. There were only about 2 DOZEN pieces from this pocket and I managed to get most of the very best ones. Thought all were sold but found 2 left, recently.With the closing of the Sweet Home Mine, your opportunity to obtain one of these is literally gone. Malachite has always been rare from the mine and this combo piece is superb. 5.2 x 4.9 x 3.0 cm
