In the Congo, malachite stalactites grow with light green and dark green alternating bands, due to variations in rainfall during the wet and dry seasons. When the stalactites are sliced and the polished, these bands form distinctive bulls eye patterns. On this specimen the concentric-ring bulls eyes are pronounced, and the result is an interesting polished slice that makes a dramatic specimen.
