CHRYSOCOLLA PSEUDO AFTER MALACHITE AFTER AZURITE
Lupoto Mine, Lubumbashi, Katanga Copper District, Katanga, DR Congo
An eye-catching bright complex cluster of very sharp crystal forms that show clearly the original shape of the azurite crystals that were altered to malachite and are now nearly all chrysocolla! Also some black heterogenite present. A delicate specimen that is very 3-dimensional and a choice cast form.
One of the mineralogical discoveries that made big news about 2 years ago, these are now quite scarce on the market.
