Beautiful individually made Malachite and Cuprite pieces. Approx 40 to 50 pieces per kilogram.

Malachite is a green copper carbonate hydroxide mineral with a chemical composition of Cu2(CO3)(OH)2. It was one of the first ores used to produce copper metal. Our specimens are sourced from the Congo which extensively mines the material for its copper content. Thus getting specimen grade material is quite difficult. Pliny the Elder, 79 CE used the ancient term Molochitus but by 1661 the revised spelling was widely adopted as Malachite.
