Ex. William Panczner

A true classic, immediately recognizable despite how much malachite comes from so many other localities - this is the chatoyant and velvety style of a very rare kind of malachite replacement of azurite, from Tsumeb. From the award-winning thumbnail collection of Sharon and William Panczner, author of the book Minerals Of Mexico, and last seen and exhibited in the 1960s.
