This is a beautiful specimen of chrysocola and malachite. It formed in distinct layers, visible along the edge where it was separated from its host rock. A blade of limestone was coated with a layer of chrysocola, followed by a thicker layer of malachite, then more chrysocola, then finally a scattering of globular malachite crystals. The malachite is so nice I considered calling this a malachite specimen, but the specimen (at least visibly) is mostly chrysocola. Beautiful!
