Shipping to United States: Free

"The Turtle" Interconnected botyroids of satiny, dark forest-green malachite, exhibit a sculptural form. These unique specimens form as thin crusts on matrix that pops off as they are mined, leaving free floating malachite "sculptures" like this. When lit in a showcase, or with a light, they show flashing "eyes" like a catseye effect in gemstones, moving across the bubbly growths. They are more beautiful in person. Good size at 12.6 ounces. The piece is damage free.
