I love this piece, though I have to let it go. It is an aesthetic combo specimen. The base or matrix is a goethite formation with stalactitic values. The piece is mostly green because of cuprian adamite, malachite and also possibly zincolivenite. Underneath some of the malachite and adamite there are crystals of cuprite that are probably altered. Aragonite is mostly at the back adding to this excellent association and fine, classic Lavrion specimen.
