Libethenite on Pseudomalchite

ID: CC1611

A solid banded Psuedomalachite matrix is liberally coated in sharply crystallised and lustrous crystals of Libethenite (crystals c. 1-3mm). An aesthetic contrast between the two tones of Green. A not so common Congolese specimen and most likely from the 1960s/1970s, or even before.
