Malachite specimens from the Great Orme, Wales
Rare Malachite specimens from the Great Orme, Wales.
These pieces come from one of the oldest Copper mines in the world, used since the Bronze Age, although it is now closed down and reopened as a visitors centre.
We have a few pieces of these, sold in various sizes.
The Great Orme is a SSSI, and mining no longer occurs to any scale – these pieces are from very old collections. I’m not able to age the collections but these specimens were collected a minimum of 50 years ago.
We also sell a range of other types of Malachite from around the world on our overall Malachite category.
