Tsumeb Mine (Tsumcorp Mine), Tsumeb, Otjikoto (Oshikoto) Region, Namibia
Small Cabinet, 6.3 x 4.9 x 4.2 cm
This fine cuprian aragonite specimen glows a light blue-green color. The individual crystals of aragonite are acicular, lustrous and translucent and nearly colorless. The crystals reach 3.5 cm in length. Although several crystal tips are damaged, the glow from the center of the specimen overcomes any deficiencies and most are OK anyhow. This specimen definitely has a WOW factor to hold its own visually with more glamorous species; and is most unusual amidst all the fancier Tsumeb species! Ex. Charlie Key Collection.
