Chrysocolla pseudo after Azurite/Malachite
Lupoto mine, Lubumbashi, Katanga Copper Crescent
Shaba, Democratic Republic of Congo (Zaire)
8.3 x 6.9 x 5.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $400
May 2015

One of the most exciting new finds this year are these very colorful Pseudomorphs from the Congo. This specimen is especially well formed with big (up to 6.2 CM) sharp crystals showing Azurite form. The crystals are now hollow casts with a small amount of residual Malachite seen inside with magnification. The entire specimen is covered with tiny, sharply terminated crystals of deep blue Chrysocolla. In fine condition esthetic and eyecatching.
