This polished piece of Malachite is 3.5 inches long by 3.25 inches wide, and about 1.75 inch at its thickest. It weighs 1.5 lbs.
This is a lovely, dark polished piece of Malachite has great banding on the edges. It is "roughly" polished on top, meaning it still has some natural roughness to it. The bottom is left natural rough.
This material is found in the oxidation zone of major copper deposits. This piece came out of the Katanga Mine, in the Congo, Africa.
Malachite is named for the Greek word for "mallow", a green herb.
