  • At first glance this specimen looks like a thin pate that has many, deep green tufts of acicular malachite over much of its surface. On one side, amongst the malachite crystals are lovely, well-formed white cerussite twins. They are not big but the malachite is colourful and a nice contrast to the white cerussite. Lots to look at!
