ID: CC20827
A superb specimen of primary Malachite crystals, very lustrous and dark emerald-green, consisting of many intergrown sharply formed flat triangles. The crystals have a triangular appearance due to the way they have intergrown and are a deep bottle-green along the edges, in fact almost black. They measure up to 1.6 cm along their edges. It is quite rare to find primary Malachite crystals, particularly with sharp crystals, although this location is known for producing superb Malachite.  Depending on how the specimen is lit, the lustre varies between glassy and velvety.
