A wow factor first seen at the 2018’s Tucson Gem & Mineral Show, this is a new combination to the mineral collecting world, unprecedented to collectors.  The association of Geothite with Malachite creates a highly contrasting visual effect in terms of color and texture.  The velvety Goethite has partially coated the globular Malachite in a lovely yellow-brown color.  The shape of the piece resembles a flower in full bloom, so beautiful!  These extraordinary pieces started appearing on the Chinese mineral market in mid 2014, supplies are very limited and hard to obtain an example of nowadays!  


Price inclusive of a high quality acrylic display box.
