Superb and brilliant specimen formed by botryoidal aggregates of malachite, of intense green color, and covered by small hyaline quartz crystals. Quartz gives it this aesthetic brilliance. Matrix is formed by a stockwork of altered chalcopyrite. Malachite specimens from this locality and with this shape are unusual.
