Malachite, Katanga, DRC; stalactite is 12" long

This stalactite is not repaired or restored. In view of the fact that the stalactite is so fragile and slender, it is remarkable that it was excavated from its pocket in tact. I bought this piece in Lubumbashi during one of my visits there in late 2009. I then carried it to Melbourne, Victoria, Australia in my hand luggage. I negotiated this piece through security check points at airports in Lubumbashi, Johannesburg, Perth, Sydney and Melbourne.
