Malachite on Calcite

ID: CC587
A very aesthesic specimen with 4 dark green sparkling balls of Malachite to 1.5cm width nestled together on a plate of white microcrystalline Calcite. Small sprays of Malachite to 3mm are scattered across the Calcite. The plate is made of several 1 mm thick layers of Calcite microcrystals, with very fine layers of Malachite between. Very attractive specimen.
