This is a most enchanting oval cabochon of malachite from Zaire, Africa.  The alternating bands of various greens are striking and really beautiful.  This stone is colored by copper- the same element that gives Paraiba tourmaline its world-renowned color.  The dimensions are: 18.01 x 13.16 x 5.22mm deep.  It is 14.62 carats in weight.



Shipping is included in the price of this auction and you will get a tracking number to keep tabs on your package.  Registered air mail is very reliable to most of the world. 



Please let me know if you have any questions about this gemstone.  I am a Graduate Gemologist from GIA and gemstones are my life and my passion.  Since childhood I have been enthralled with stones and I am blessed to be living my dream in the colored stone wholesale center of Thailand.  Send me an e-mail at , I would love to hear from you!



This auction starts at 4BTC and the bid increment is .5BTC.  This auction will end in 24 hours so bid now to improve your chances of winning this very pretty malachite from Zaire!

Can you get non-gem cut malachite? I really want a big polished piece, like, 4+ ounces, preferably in the mother rock.

Hello Mila!

There is a very easy way to educate yourself about the differences between Tip Top Gem and other gemstone merchants on eBay.  Simply buy their "cheap" malachite, and buy mine.  Of course they also offer a money back guarantee with no restocking fee, so there is no risk to you.  Return the one that you don't like.

There are thousands of Thai sellers and Chinese sellers on eBay who have low prices.  But for discerning collectors, many other factors determine how they will spend their dollars- or bitcoin!  Many want to buy from a company that is run by a gemologist- someone who is actually educated about gemstones and can educate them when they have questions.  They also feel that it is worth a small premium to ensure that they are getting the stone that is being advertised- and that has been a problem on eBay for many years, and continues to be a major issue to this day.  Many collectors have been through the wringer with eBay sellers who charge a restocking fee, or hassle them when they want to return a stone.  They also know that the majority of Thai and Chinese sellers on eBay are not as particular as my wife Melanie and myself.  They know that as collectors, we understand quality and we will sell gemstones that they are proud to own- because we are selling gemstones that we would be proud to own!

If you are shopping primarily for price, there are many places to buy gemstones online.  But most of my clients are not looking for cheap stones.  They want quality gemstones that are free of chips and scratches, that are properly identified, and that have premium color.  They are looking for a gemologist who is educated about the latest treatments and discloses them in an ethical fashion.  And they are looking for a person with integrity.  I would submit that you are far better off dealing with Tip Top Gem than you are buying from eBay.

The volume and complexity of gem stone scams is staggering! I personally vouch for TipTopGem, I've bought many stones from him and continue to buy more. By far the best quality here. TipTopGem's stones are NOT sample stones and he is extremely black and white when it comes to describing color and clarity.

"It is unwise to pay too much, but it is also unwise to pay too little.
When you pay too much you lose a little money, that is all.
When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything because the thing you bought was incapable of doing what it was bought to do.
The common law of business prohibits paying a little and getting a lot - it can't be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well to add something for the risk you run.
And if you do that you will have enough to pay for something better."

-John Ruskin

What does this even mean? It is essentially nonsense.

Sample stones are generally a wide variety of cheap/inexpensive highly included stones that dealers and jewelry manufacturers have on hand to display the variety of types and colors to choose from. They are not made for mounting and are generally cut very poorly. A ton of 'jewelers' pass these off in cheap setting to make a quick buck because the stones cost them next to or nothing as they are given to them by gem distributors as samples.
