An unusual specimen of Malachite from the Tsumeb mine composed of intergrown 2 mm diameter spherules of a somewhat peppermint light green.  Each sphere is formed from a radiating group of acicular Malachite fibres, the structure of which is seen where an odd sphere has been broken.  The fibrous texture gives this specimen a velvety sheen.  An interesting and attractive fibrous Malachite from Tsumeb.
