Here is an interesting variation! This plate has several elongated crystals on it that once were azurite but have been replaced by malachite. While this is not unusual, the pseudo's also have tiny calcite crystals preferentially deposited on certain of the pseudo faces and then a final deposit of quartz crystals has given the crystals a cap. Interesting!
