ID: CC20914
From a recent find in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), an interesting double pseudomorph of Chrysocolla replacing Malachite after Azurite.  Several original tabular Azurite crystals are encrusted in a druse of glassy transparent colourless Quartz crystals which create a sucrosic-textured sparkle to the underlying intense sky-blue Chrysocolla.  The crystals in this specimen form a vertically-bent stalagmitic structure with a C-shaped, corral-like habit.  The Tenke-Fungurume area delineates a 30 km mineralised zone between Tenke hill and Fungurume hill in the Kolwezi mining district.  Around the base at the back of the specimen, parts of the central core of dark emerald-green Malachite can be seen.  A vividly coloured and architecturally shaped miniature of pseudomorphed Chrysocolla mounted on a square colourless acrylic base.
