MALACHITE STONE SPERES
Malachite is a popular, intense green, copper-based mineral. While Malachite rarely forms as large individual crystals, it is often found in botryoidal (globular) masses. When cut or polished these botryoidal masses display gorgeous, banded patterns full of concentric rings and other interesting shapes. This polished, banded malachite is highly sought after and has been used for decorative/ornamental purposes for centuries. This mineral seems to have formed explicitly to be shaped into spheres. The wide variety of shapes that appear within polished malachite are enhanced by the glossy curvature of the sphere and make for an absolutely jaw dropping display piece.
