One of the more exciting additions to my rock collection last year was this rather lovely malachite specimen. For many collectors, it's all about the thrill of the chase but this acquisition was rather unexpected and for that reason, all the more heart-warming. Other than the colour, what I love most about this rock are the little crystals embedded at the core of those little bulbous mounds. While I would be the first to admit it needs a good polish, there's something so lovely about it left in its raw state that leaves me feeling more connected to the earth.
