This is a beautiful cabinet-size specimen of lustrous, brilliant emerald-green metatorbernite crystals to over 1 cm each on contrasting darker green malachite matrix from the classic Musonoi mine in the DR Congo. Good metatorbernite specimens from the Congo have become rather uncommon on the market, and this fine older specimen is in good condition and quite aesthetic too. Ex.
