When malachite stalactites are mined in the Congo, they are sometimes cut into thin semi-precious slices which are polished to show off the alternating concentric bands of lighter and darker green. These circular formations, that are called bull's eyes, are the result of malachite forming during dry and wet periods. The varied shades of green, combined with its bright polished luster, make this a stunning display specimen.
