Rare large cluster of Rosasite after Malachite after Azurite crystals, the largest cluster I can recall ever seeing. Note that this has been repaired in a number of places. This came out of an old collection and the repairs have not been done to modern standards, so it could be greatly improved. There are five large crystals that comprise the group. Just a rare and spectacular piece.


T657 - Malachite on Chrysocolla after Malachite $ 1200
Katanga, Congo
cabinet - 10 x 8.5 x 4 cm

Malachite on Chrysocolla after Malachite from Katanga, Congo [db_pics/pics/t657a.jpg] Malachite on Chrysocolla after Malachite from Katanga, Congo [db_pics/pics/t657b.jpg] Malachite on Chrysocolla after Malachite from Katanga, Congo [db_pics/pics/t657c.jpg]

The Katanga region of the Democratic Republic of Congo is the Malachite capital of the world, yet most of the Malachite is lapidary grade with only a small percentage (usually fibrous or stalactitc specimens) being of any interest to mineral collectors. With specimens like this, Katanga can also claim to be one of the best localities for perfectly crystallized Malachite too. This specimen features perfectly formed individual crystals to 1.3 cm on a colorful and contrasting matrix of sky blue Chrysocolla. Just fabulously sharp single crystals.The Chrysocolla has partially pseudomorphed an earlier generation of Malachite crystals.
