RTD This mound of gossanous matrix is covered with a black compound, perhaps a manganese oxide. This in turn is heavily speckled with small 1mm tufts of green, acicular malachite crystals. Concentrated, in a number of spots are deep blue, bladed, gorgeous azurite crystals. Nice piece from one of the greatest mineral localities of all time!
