Arguably the finest green mineral on the earth, malachite's rich, vivid, vibrant green color makes it unique in the mineral kingdom. Malachite is a copper carbonate mineral and is available in a diverse variety of forms as botryoidal, fibrous, or stalagmitic masses in fractures and spaces, deep underground, where the water table and hydrothermal fluids provide the means for chemical precipitation. It crystallizes in the monoclinic crystal system; individual crystals, though rare, form slender, acicular needles.
We have been collecting mineral specimens in Southern Africa since 2002. We focus on bringing a wide variety of unusual, beautiful, and energetic minerals! We travel to Africa and buy directly from small-scale miners to ensure the quality of the crystals and that the operations are legitimate.
