A classic specimen of Malachite coating Cuprite crystals on Azurite from the celebrated French locality of Chessy. The interpenetrant cubo-octahedral crystals of Cupite sit aesthetically atop the Azurite specimen. The Cuprite crystals measuring to 1cm are coated and partly replaced by light green Malachite. The crystal group is contrasted with the underlying deep royal blue Azurite crystal matrix. The Azurite crystals are spotted and intergrown with ferruginous Quartz, and forme a rosette like cluster.
