A striking piece featuring deep-green, highly translucent, acicular Brochantite crystals on a dark-brown matrix from Tsumeb. At first glance it can appear to be Malachite, but the deep-green color and reflections from countless crystal faces requires a closer look. With a loupe it is amazing to see all of the gemmy, green acicular radiating crystals.
