For sale is a good example of quite uncommon black malachite from Rum Jungle, N.T. First I have to say this piece was hard to photograph, black specimen usually are, but the flashing white surface marks on the specimen is actually the luster reflection off the crystals surfaces. Black malachite is not often seen, and Rum Jungle has produced by far Australia’s finest specimen of this material. We obtained this piece from the miner, Paul Melville, it comes from his collection, with his label. Paul told me they were only able to obtain a small number of these specimen at the time. This specimen is undoubtedly finer in person! Please remember our prices are in Australian dollars.
