Conichalcite on Malachite with Calcite and Cuprite

ID: CC16057
I defy you to look at this specimen under low magnification and not smile with delight. Dozens of sub-1 mm diameter limey-leaf green Conichalcite spheres are richly scattered over a dome of dark emerald green Malachite crystals giving a splendid contrast in colour, texture and lustre. The Conichalcite has a velvety matt lustre contrasting against the bright glassy primary Malachite. This cluster measures approximately 2.0 x 1.8 cm and sits well on a bed of micro-crystalline glassy white Calcite overlaying low grade earthy Cuprite. An excellent and highly pleasing Conichalcite on Malachite with Calcite from the Tsumeb mine in Namibia. This specimen comes with a small square acrylic base but is not attached to it.
