It is botryoidal malachite. The part at the bottom where it is broken is the tell-tale part that "reveals its true identity."

Lepidoptera - Yup, I reckon it's a flutterby or a moff.
...And its claws are as big as cups, and for some reason it's got a tremendous fear of stamps! And Mrs Doyle was telling me it's got magnets on its tail, so if you're made out of metal it can attach itself to you! And instead of a mouth it's got four arses!

VERY close but not the same genus of Family Rafflesiaceae - It is another parasitic plant - this time from the Himalayas. It is Sapria himalayana
