Kalukaluku Mine, Katanga Proirng, Congo
This small Katanga malachite specimen shows the beautiful bright green malachite crystals that are look like a velvety moss. And while bright green from some angles, the individual clusters change to a dark green or even black appearance from others, due to an intergrowth of very fine motramite crystals. Some of the edges reveal the radial growth pattern of the malachite, as the broken edges display the interior of the crystal clusters.
