Malachite Fancy Cabs - Matched Pair
Superb Natural Malachite cabs. Rich range of forest green tones in bands and swirls.
Malachite is an ore of copper. The bands are created from tint needle like crystals, packed together. The darker the bands, the more compact the formation of the crystals within the band.
Sometimes, some of the host rock the malachite formed on can be seen within the gem.
These cabs have natural paler lines - these are not flaws, just part of these gems.
Flat backed and polished on the faces only.
25 x 18.9 x 4.8 mm and 25 x 18.7 x 5.1 mm
