Locality: L'Etoile du Congo Mine (Star of the Congo Mine; Kalukuluku Mine), Lubumbashi, Haut-Katanga, DR Congo
Very aesthetic specimen that shows globular aggregates of Malachite, exceedingly sparkly in an intense forest-green color. If you take a look under the magnifying glass, you will see that they are formed by gemmy, microcrystals of Malachite. From the famous L'Etoile du Congo Mine, this is a truly amazing and showy piece – a highlight to any collection!
