This truely looks more like a Malachite after Tanzanite than what it is, such an unusal shape. The single 3.5cm tall crystal is visually striking against the white matrix. The chatoyancy of the velvety Malachite is wonderful with a uniform wave of light rolling up to the termination as you turn it in your hand. There is some Azurite around the base ofthe crystal. Unique.

Large single Azurite crystal with Malachite and smaller attached Azurite crystals. Superb electric blue coloration and wet luster. The frontside has a couple rows of tiny Azurites attached, and the backside has a single larger Azurite coming out the face. This grew straight out from the pocket wall giving such beautiful 360 degree viewing. There is a natural notch along the top edge and there appears to be a little damage right in the notch. Otherwise this is perfect and even stands up on it's own.
