    Description

    Malachite
    Liufengshan Mine, Guichi District
    Chizhou, Anhui
    China

    This specimen consists of an appendage of Malachite rising off a base cluster of similar material with an underpinning of beautiful blue Azurite which is, unfortunately, effectively hidden under the piece when in its custom engraved acrylic base. The rock is unique to say the least and a striking representative of the variety. This offering displayed in a case is sure to solicit some comments, likely of a 'bawdy' nature, but the specimen is actually quite an aesthetic and impactful example of the secondary Copper, popular for so many reasons. The association with Azurite adds to the charm of this out of the ordinary offering.
    Measurements: 3.35 x 3.13 x 2.19 inches (8.50 x 7.95 x 5.57 cm)
