At the Mashamba West mine in 2014, a large pocket produced a quantity of very colorful chrysocolla.  Since there has been little available for several years, this was a welcome discovery.  The best material from this find was the pieces with islands of dark green and very sparkly malachite crystals floating on a sea of bright turquoise chrysocolla.  This specimen has a nice balance between the two highly contrasting minerals, and there is no damage.
