This truely looks more like a Malachite after Tanzanite than what it is, such an unusal shape. The single 3.5cm tall crystal is visually striking against the white matrix. The chatoyancy of the velvety Malachite is wonderful with a uniform wave of light rolling up to the termination as you turn it in your hand. There is some Azurite around the base ofthe crystal. Unique.

The frontside has a couple rows of tiny Azurites attached, and the backside has a single larger Azurite coming out the face. This grew straight out from the pocket wall giving such beautiful 360 degree viewing. There is a natural notch along the top edge and there appears to be a little damage right in the notch. Otherwise this is perfect and even stands up on it's own.

Superb electric blue Azurite crystals with a few stringers of Malachite on one side. This is from the watercourse pocket (also called the elegant pocket or spiderweb pocket) that was opened in 2013. Nearly a floater cluster (there is contacting on a few of the bottom of a few of the lower crystals) composed of intergrown crystals to 1.9cm in size. Although this was mined in 2013 it only made its way north of the border in late 2014 having been stashed away by a miner. Undamaged and superb.
