WHAT IS MALACHITE:
Malachite is a copper carbonate hydroxide mineral.
Malachite often results from the supergene weathering and oxidation of primary sulfidic copper ores, and is often found with azurite, goethite, and calcite.
Except for its vibrant green color, the properties of malachite are similar to those of azurite and aggregates of the two minerals occur frequently.
Malachite is more common than azurite and is typically associated with copper deposits around limestones, the source of the carbonate.
Please note that the backs are more unpolished.
