RM1788   Malachite with azurite and limonite

Oumjrane mines, Alnif, Er Rachidia, Meknès-Tafilalet, Morocco

Aesthetic group of elongated, fan-shaped and very well defined prismatic crystals of malachite, it would seem to be primary but in my opinion it is a total pseudomorphic substitution after azurite crystals. Accompanied by a azurite brilliant crystal. The brightness is excellent, intense green color, forming divergent aggregates. They are disposed filling cavities of the goethite matrix (limonite). Excellent specimens rarely seen in collections.

Size: 6.0 x 5.0 x 4.7 cm.
Main crystal: 10 x 2 mm.
