This beauty is a wonderful piece of Malachite, easily held in the palm of one's hand.

There are natural crevices it, but it has been polished on all sides. It measures roughly 3" x 2" x 1 1/2" and weighs 455 grams, or 1 pound.

There are many bulleyes in this dark greeen and black-looking Malachite piece. In normal room lighting it looks dark like in many of the photos, but under direct light or sunlight it is even nicer than it looks on the black background. It measures roughly 4" x 3" x 2". It weights 1 lb 14 ounces, or 865 grams. (If considering for lapidary rough, we are not sure how deep the patterns go into the stone the Malachite; you can see from the last photo that the underside looks much more plain. But a very neat piece just as it is.)

This is a larger piece of Malachite from the African Congo, and even has an area of Chrysocolla visible. The botryoidal patterns (that means like bubbly, sphere shapes; from a Greek word - resembling a cluster of grapes) are mostly larger on one side and smaller, stunningly gorgeous ones on the bottom side as well (photo 4). It is being offered in both our categories of rough material as well as display. It has a polish on the top side, but the other sides, all sliced, remain natural and mostly unpolished. It measures roughly 8" x 4" and varies in thickness between 6 and 45 mm. The weight is 4 lbs, 3 ounces (1.9 kgs). It will stand on end or the side if displaying (there is a thin rounded saw cut on the very edge of the thinner end).
