This is a fabulous example of a malachite pseudomorph of azurite, featuring very sharp malachite replacement pseudomorphs after azurite crystals to about .7". The malachite is a lovely grass green, with a slightly velvety surface. Here the malachite has completely replaced the azurite, while still keeping the precise shape of the azurite crystals, including most of the fine details of the azurite crystals. This zone in the Milpillas Mine from which this fine specimen was taken was mined out a few years back, so there won't be any more.
