Goethite on Malachite from Sepon Mine, Laos
Dimension: 6.4cm x 3.5cm x 5.6cm
Locality: Khanong open pit, Sepon Mine, Vilabouly District, Savannakhet Province, Laos
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 alongside with beautiful bands of Malachite showing on the exposed surfaces on the sides. 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! A gorgeous piece with great aesthetics from this locale.
Price inclusive of a high quality acrylic display box.
