A BEAUTIFUL and AESTHETIC Tsumeb specimen of lustrous and striated, azure-blue azurite crystals jauntily perched on contrasting lustrous, translucent, colorless, smithsonite rhombs. The contrast is striking. There are some small damaged crystals mixed in, but this remains a beautiful Tsumeb piece, regardless of the scattered damage. 6.3 x 4.0 x 1.9 cm
