MALACHITE CHRYSOCOLLA (Democratic Republic of Congo).  A material that I've never seen until now

and it's really quite stunning, consisting of fan-like malachite clusters surrounded by chrysocolla.

Only one piece remaining, on the right in the photos, has one side roughly sawn (first photo) with the remainder polished (second photo).

I've not cut or polished any of this material myself but I suspect it will be rather fragile.

If the rough side was lapped and polished this piece would be great for display.
