ID: CC20410
A beautiful, globular dense spray of fibrous emerald-green Malachite crystals form a roughly 1 x 1 x 1 cm crystallised group, with a wonderful silky lustre.  This sits on the crest of an attractively iron-stained Calcite matrix, coloured by a range of rusty and russet hues.  A lovely old time specimen of Malachite from Chile.

Ex. the Mineral Collection of Archduke Stephan Franz Viktor of Hungary (1817 to 1867), with a historic Archduke (Erzherzog) Stephan label incorporating his coat of arms.  This label measures 8.6 x 4.8 cm; it is complete (untrimmed) and is numbered 144/21.  A small label bearing this same number is glued to the base of the specimen together with a Carl Rumpff label, dated 1889 stuck to one side.  The Archduke label is in fair to good condition; it has been folded twice, leaving one vertical and one horizontal crease and has quite dense foxing.  The specimen comes with one of the unique thick green card boxes which the Archduke had specifically made to house the specimens.
