Malachite

ID: CC1594

Several bright to dark green Malachite stalactites have 'bonded' together with a curved form - an unusual growth habit for primary Malachite but typical of this locality. One stalactite has a particularly aesthetic termination (elongate with some spherical growth detail) and the trio exhibit a sparkling lustre to their velvet texture.
