Hundreds of sprays of tiny Malachite needles are scattered about the black host rock of this hand specimen. These sprays are generally in good condition and do not exceed 1 or 2 mm in length. Many are intergrown to form loose "crusts" that coat the base, and portions of these are further coated with tiny quartz druses. A few of the sprays have pseudomorphed into chrysocolla, and the black base was likely coated with an azurite crust that decomposed.
