Chrysocolla over Malachite No2
Chrysocolla over Malachite
This unique piece started life as green Malachite, in fact if you look closely you can see the underlying rounded "bumps" that are so typical of Malachite. Probably hundreds of thousands of years after it had formed it was covered by blue Chrysocolla running over it in liquid form. The Chrysocolla itself crystallised and took on the shape or form of the Malachite.
You can easily see the Malachite under the covering of Chrysocolla on this piece.
Pieces such as this are known as psuedomorphs. They have the shape and structure of one mineral but the colouring, look and feel of another mineral.
This is a great piece and metaphysically brings to us the properties of both stones and both stones have strong links to Devic forces and natures spirits and help us to attune and connect to Mother Earth.
