Euchroite


Breithaupt (1823) listed euchroite as an olive colored malachite with orthorhombic symmetry. Later authors redefined the chemistry, until Finney (1966) unambigiously defined the formula as Cu2(AsO4)(OH)·3H2O. This fine specimen comes from the type locality, once known as Libethen (in Hungary), now called L'ubietová (in Slovakia). This is an attractive example, consisting of a parallel growth aggregate of semi-transparent emerald-green euchroite crystals.
