ID: CC5649
An impressive combination of three carbonate minerals from the oxidation zone of the Broken Hill orebody in New South Wales, Australia.  A rather cellular aggregate of species, with lustrous deep royal blue bladed Azurite crystals clustered and scattered over the specimen. Light green botryoidal 'stalactites' of Malachite coat the top surface of the specimen, with bladed crystals of white Cerussite in various areas, with some tending towards reticulated.  All these supergene species have developed over a porous, gossan matrix of Goethite and Quartz.
