Polished Malachite & Chrysocolla No3
Polished Malachite & Chrysocolla
This is a lovely piece of Malachite & Chrysocolla that has had the top surface polished to bring out the colours - and very well it's been done too !
The blue and the green compliment each other perfectly.
This is a lovely piece, all the more so when you know that this is a difficult stone to tumble or polish as without the utmost care it just breaks up. Any little "caves" or druzy areas present are simply the nature of the stone.
This mix of stones occurring together is sometimes referred to as "Malacolla" although this made up word doesn't seem to reflect the beauty of the stone at all !
Size approx. 55mm x 35mm x 12mm
Weight approx. 57grms
