This gorgerous piece has beautiful, powder-blue Chrysocolla forming as a thin carpet in the few vugs with a moderate lustre, a fine specimen from the Star of the Congo Mine. This excellent piece has nice aesthetics with the traces of starkly contrasting, sparkly, green Malachite on the fringe and on the underside.
