    Polished Malachite Free-Form
    DR Congo

    This massive specimen of gorgeous green Malachite originated in the famed Copper Crescent region of Africa. This Copper carbonate features the classic, rich, coloration and texture so often associated with Malachite from this region. In terms of size, this is an enormous, superlative piece, and specimens of this size are not often offered for auction. Weighing in at over 80 pounds (36 kilograms), this will definitely make a statement in any room. Malachite is prized for its saturated green hue and lovely "Bull's-Eye" patterns which this stunner exemplifies. This one-of-a-kind Malachite has everything and an additional spattering of cavernous sections, with velvety, botryoidal Malachite inside. This entire piece has been polished to a high luster for maximum visual appeal. The enormous Malachite free-form is in excellent condition and rests securely in multiple orientations without need of a base.
    Overall Measurements: 20.00 x 12.00 x 12.00 inches (50.80 x 30.48 x 30.48 cm)
