Tsumeb Mine (Tsumcorp Mine), Tsumeb, Otjikoto (Oshikoto) Region, Namibia
Miniature, 3.5 x 3.3 x 2.0 cm
The history on the George White label shows this specimen to have been acquired by White from Ed Over in 1935 (and he has an autograph from Ed taped to the back of his label to prove it), so it is a venerable old Tsumeb piece with a rich pedigree! It consists of very lustrous crystals to 1.6 cm stacked beautifully atop the coated azurite matrix below which forms a "base" for the crystals. Minor damage to peripheral crystals but the major crystal is good. 3.5 x 3.3 x 2 cm
