I didn't realize how nice this specimen was until I got to really looking at it. It's a good combination specimen with large fuzzy botryoids of Malachite lining the large cavities. Associated with the Malachite are lustrous DIoptase crystals to 3mm and white Dolomite or possible Minrecordite. Displays well and would be a good addition to anyone's Tsumeb suite.
