Pseudomalachite

ID: CC1890

A very rich specimen of the Copper Phosphate Pseudomalachite, from the extensive copper deposits of the Kambove area in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The Pseudomalachite forms a shell with a botryoidal surface covering an earlier phase of Malachite on a matrix of Fe-oxides and Quartz. The colour of the Pseudomalachite is mostly a deep rich blueish-green, with contrasting mid-blue green. The Malachite is a sparkling grass green which stands out against the Pseudomalachite. The underside of the specimen is also partly covered by crystalline botryoidal green Malachite.
