Malachite Pseudomorph After Azurite

ID: CC1760

Five flattened rhomb shaped crystals of Azurite have been completely pseudomorphed by chatoyant fibrous green Malachite. The pseudomorphed crystals grow from a bright green matrix of Bayldonite or Gartrellite coated by clusters of fibrous Malachite, and dotted with lustrous dark blue Azurite crystals. The way the Malachite pseudomorphs stand like a fan of crystals rising from the matrix makes for a very cool Tsumeb specimen. This is from the first oxidation zone, and was in the collection of Wilhelm Oerter, a mine captain at Tsumeb, who actively collected in the first oxidation zone from his arrival in 1909.
