Locality: Lupoto Mine, Katanga, Lubumbashi, D.R. Congo
Phenomenal, large assemble of this well-known material of Chrysocolla pseudomorph after Malachite from the Lupoto Mine, Katanga, D.R. Congo. Some says it’s Chrysocolla on Malachite pseudomorph after Azurite but the exposed cross-sections reveal that the core is entirely Malachite. In addition, upon close examination with good light, one can see the Malachite are very crystallized and sparkly. The eye-catching Chrysocolla crystals in the most desired vivid sky blue color have a spiky appearance, a signature feature of Chrysocolla from this locale. It is complete all around, the sky blue color is even better in person. This is such a killer piece for connoisseur collectors!
