Undamaged floater crystal group with no points of contact - nothing but great crystals. The crystals have good luster and fantastic electric blue color. This specimen is from what was called the Watercourse Pocket. The main, central crystal has a little area of Malachite poking out one end.

There si one tiny crystal that is damaged, likely due to the internal alteration to Malachite, otherwise the specimen is undamaged.
