This is a stunning specimen of Malachite. This is also an unusual specimen in that this piece is comprised of sprays of needle-like (acicular) crystals that form fan-like clusters. The result is a gorgeous deep green cluster with a velvet-like luster. Not to mention it looks like a head of Broccoli . . . Truly, a beautiful, aesthetic specimen that is a real eye-catcher, in excellent condition.
