Here is a slice that was cut from a malachite stalactite, then polished to a brilliant luster on both sides. The polishing reveals concentric bands of light and dark green colors, the result of malachite forming in dry and wet seasons in the Congo (the dark bands formed during dry seasons, and the light bands during wet seasons). The result is that this polished slice is a colorful and highly aesthetic specimen.
