This specimen is really a grouping of minerals or at least a piece that cannot really be accurately defined as just one species. This rock, which has been cut flat on the bottom, features crystals of "liquid" Quartz on radiating Malachite which is really what makes this specimen special. The Quartz crystals have grown into a cavity looking like a mountainous cavern guarded by the chatoyant flattened Malachite spherules. The periphery and underside have lagniappes of a small crystalline pockets of shimmering white Quartz.
