Azurite, Arsentsumebite
Tsumeb, Otjikoto (Oshikoto) Region, Namibia
Miniature, 4.7 x 3.7 x 1.6 cm
A very difficult-to-obtain specimen of lustrous azurite crystals on matrix associated with the rare lead-copper-arsenate-sulfate-hydroxide, arsentsumebite. A prize for a Tsumeb collector or just a collector of rare (and pretty, in this case!) specimens! This is awesome color contrast. Tsumeb is the arsentsumebite. type locality, and in fact it has hardly been seen anywhere else. 4.7 x 3.7 x 1.6cm
