Malachite Ps. Azurite
Small Cabinet, 6.3 x 4.4 x 3.1 cm
Milpillas Mine, near Nacozari, Sonora, Mexico
A sharp piece with crystals to 2.2 cm in a cluster that is perched upon matrix infused with malachite, and so colored a lighter green. The contrast visually is much better in person, as this is a very 3-dimensional specimen, hard to photograph. A small bit of calcite is attached to one malachite crystal tip, and otherwise all those crystals in the rosette atop are showing full terminations.
