DXL29 Malachite
Tsumeb Mine, Otjikoto Region, Namibia
5.6x 4.5x 3.6 cm
$335

An unusual malachte specimen from Tsumeb.  My guess would be that it is a pseudomorph after another mineral (azurite would be the likely candidate) but the radial form with raised plateaus doesn"t really fit azurite.  Adamite takes that form, but I don"t think that malachite would pseudomorph that mineral.... so it could just be a primary growth.
