This is a sweetheart. A 1.7 cm ball of green malachite crystals is nestled in among transparent quartz crystals. The quartz has some light blue hue, due to underlying associated chrysocolla. In excellent condition, one tiny speck on the malachite. This is a completely distinctive, aesthetic specimen.
