A very unique specimen of fibrous green Malachite with a random, driftwood-like formation. The fibrous crystal structure displays a chatoyant, silky luster (Chatoyancy: an optical reflectance effect, as in “cat’s eye,” arising from the fibrous structure of a material . . . ), making this piece very aesthetic and eye catching. In excellent condition.
