When malachite is polished, it reveals the alternating bands of dark and light material that gives it the name bull's-eye malachite. The concentric stripes on this specimen are sharply defined, probably the result of seasonal fluctuations in rainfall that give it a dramatic and colorful decorative pizzazz. On one side the light and dark green bands alternate with turquoise blue chrysocolla, which gives it a very colorful and highly aesthetic look. There is no damage to this fine specimen.
