A rare and stunning specimen featuring numerous rich-green, sparkling microcrystalline Malachite stalactites rising from (or in their natural state, descending from . . . ) a botryoidal mass of banded Malachite. I was amazed when I saw this piece with all of the stalactites intact and damage free – not an easy find due to the challenges of extraction. A truly amazing and showy piece in amazing condition – a highlight to any collection!
