ID: CC18960
A beautifully crystallised pseudomorph of Malachite after Azurite from the Tsumeb mine in the Oshikoto Region of Namibia.  Razor-sharp crystals of Malachite replacing Azurite completely hide an underlying matrix of Dolomite and Smithsonite, with crystals averaging around 1 to 1.5 cm wide.  The crystals are complex and perfect, with the Malachite forming bright leaf-green silky, fibrous faces, with other faces a much darker, velvety-green.  An excellently formed and aesthetic specimen.
