A very rare old German classic - superb sprays of Malachite, richly set on gossan matrix, from Germany´s ancient mining district in Siegerland. The elongated primary crystals of Malachite, which reach up to 1.3 cm individually, have an adamantine luster that is nothing short of fantastic, and a deep forest green colour that complements the luster perfectly. These crystals are not large by worldwide standards, but they are stunning by the standards of old German Malachites, and important for the location and the style. Note that these are not pseudomorphs after Azurite, but rather primary Malachite in its own native crystal habit (more rare). An old specimen, and rare on the market. The Friedrich Mine near Wissen was under construction from 1803 to 1953. So this specimen very probably dates back to the time between 1850 and 1900 (scripture and style of the label). Old, aesthetics and important.
