Unusual Fibrous & botryoidal Malachite & Chrysocolla

 

Origin: Africa, Democratic Republic of the Congo

 

A very beautifully shiny bright-green specimen of Fibrous Malachite.

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

 

The photos were taken in bright sunlight to bring out their best colours.
