Description

A fine and colorful combination piece, reminds of the old times when such specimens have been classics for the area! The piece has crystals of azurite, malachite, brochanthite and goethite after calcite!I believe that analysis can show much more species, possibly olivenite and adamite. It has crystals everywhere and it's hard to decide the correct display!It's very stable and all who see it will ask you to handle it!
