Tantara Mine, Shinkolobwe, Kambove District, Haut-Katanga, DR Congo

malachite after cuprite (total replacement) on matrix, 2.5 cm crystal, that's huge for Tantara, Tantara RDC, the only one I have ever seen from there (a few plancheite pseudos after cuprite are known from this deposit, from the old times)
