crystal on quartz

it is from Turkey

does it effervesce in acid? If so I would say it is malachite.

I don't try yet.. I think so but I want ask

I would tend to agree with malachite, but please let us know the acid result.

affected by acid so it is malachite
Thomas Lühr February 18, 2018 06:01PM
"affected" is not precise enaugh. This can also mean solved without effervescence. Then it would exclude malachite and could be brochantite or almost any other green copper (or even nickel) mineral.

If it was "affected" by acid, i.e., it effervesced, then it can't be brochantite...
