RM2792   Malachite with chacopyrite and covellite-bornite

Bleida mines, Tinzouline Caïdat, Zagora cercle, Drâa-Tafilalet, Morocco

These specimens show us a chalcopyrite matrix partially transformed into irisdecent covellite-bornite and goethite. In the cavities there are numerous aggregates of prismatic malachite crystals, of an intense green, with transparency and brilliance. If we observe them with the magnifying glass we can see that they are faceted crystals. A novelty in the Bleida mines area.

Size: 6.7 x 5.3 x 5.6 cm.
