ID: CC5828
A fine combination specimen of two copper phosphates from the classic Slovakian location of Ľubietová, formerly named Libethen.  Deep bottle green Libethenite crystals cover a large area of the rusty-orange-tan Quartz/Goethite matrix with a substantial presence of rounded, dark blue-green botryoidal Pseudomalachite, up to 2.5 cm wide.  Many edges of the Pseudomalachite display an excellent depositional banded structure, just like Malachite and hence its name!  A splendid old-time specimen from this classic European location.
