An amazing colour this Malachite green complemented by a powerful 3D effect.
Malachite is renowned for being used as an artist's pigment until around 1800, but has been mined for over 3,000 years at the so-called King Solomon's Mines in Israel.
This is an unusual specimen of malachite as the concentric bands are so fine and regular, and there are no inclusions m,aking this a very pure sample.
Imagine it at at least 60 x 60 cms. Dramatic is a word that springs to mind just as the image seems to spring out of its frame.
