Regular priceSale price
This is a thumbnail specimen of fibrous malachite from Kolwezi, Katanga Province, Democratic Republic of Congo. Malachite is known to have many growth patterns, and this fibrous malachite consists of botryoidal clusters of radiating malachite crystals. This creates a unique chatoyancy, where the light reflects off the tiny individual crystals and creates a holographic effect. This specimen has a deep green hue, and you can see the botryoidal form on the 'back' side of the malachite.
This specimen is approximately 1.3cm x 1.8cm x 1.2cm. You will also receive a free 'perky' display box and a label with the mineral name and the locale where it was mined.
