Malachite (Onganja, Namibia)
Onganja Mine, Namibia. 35mm x 35mm x 25mm.
Onganja Mine was a famed copper deposit in Namibia. It made headlines when the great cuprites where found in the late 70's. Aside from the Cuprte there was also great Malachite, Copper and Rutile to be found at this mine, it is now in private hands and there is no futher collecting permitted (on the dumps, this as the shafts are long closed and many are completely flooded) These are specimens one will not see easily again, Onganja is a piece of history.
