Malachite Pseudomorph after Azurite, with Calcite
Small Cabinet, 6.3 x 4.6 x 2.7 cm
Tsumeb Mine, Tsumeb, Namibia
A gorgeous and complex cluster of sharp pseudomorphs interactig with bright amber-colored calcite clusters. This is a highly unusual association, and the two minerals contrast to each other nicely. The pseudomorphs exhibit the chatoyant patterning of malachite on the surface that makes these so famous and desirable, but is seldom available. Old classic!
