Botryoidal Chrysocolla & Fine Malachite Crystals

 

Origin: Africa, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Katanga, Lubumbashi, L'Etoile du Congo Mine

 

Chrysocolla is a light to deep blue coloured mineral found in association with copper and other copper ore minerals. Beautiful botryoidal crystal formation.

 

Malachite is a secondary copper mineral, an opaque green mineral that crystallizes and forms botryoidal, fibrous or stalagmitic growths deep underground. The name is derived from the Greek words, molochitis lithos meaning "mallow-green stone".
