Malachite - velvet luster stalactites
Shuli Mine, Yangchun County
Guangdong, China
5.9 x 4.3 x 4 CM (cabinet)
price: $320
Spring 2020

A chantoyant "velvet" Malachite from the Shuli Mine, ex Shields and Frances Flynn collection. The Shuli Mine has on occasion produced some incredible Malachites that are rather like the best material from the Congo yet discernably different. Most good pieces tend to be large blocks, plates or masses, smaller cabinet specimens are quite uncommon. This is a perfectly complete undamaged early piece that is not huge and has the classic look of a fine Shuli Malachite.
