A fine miniature! Doubly terminated, stout, crystal, to 3.2 cm in length, of chatoyant, forest green malachite after azurite is perched on the side of a partial crystal of the same species. There is contact on the right hand side of the DT crystal which partially affects it's display quality, hence the lower price. However, it IS the rarest style, with the velvety chatoyant look to the surface, and these are rare and have value. Beautiful on a shelf!
