  • This is just a great example of malachite replacing azurite from one the location that produces some of the best. Deep emerald-green tiny crystals of malachite make up this pseudomorph. Interestingly, there is a much smaller deep-blue, azurite crystal at the lower left part of the specimen. Sweet!
