Malachite after Chalcopyrite crystals with Quartz

Superb cabinet specimen featuring Malachite after Chalcopyrite crystals with Quartz!
These pseudomorphs are in perfect condition and measure to 3 cm in
size. The surfaces are excellent and nearly pristine while the brown Quartz needles are complete and unbroken. A specimen in this condition from this locale is extremely rare. I don't see many to begin with and this one ranks in the top three of those I have seen. The drusy coating adds an attractive surface sparkle.
From El Cobre Mine, ConcepciĆ³n del Oro, Mun. de ConcepciĆ³n del Oro, Zacatecas, Mexico.
Measures 11.5 cm by 12 cm by 9.8 cm in total size.
