Tsumeb Mine (Tsumcorp Mine), Tsumeb, Otjikoto (Oshikoto) Region, Namibia
Cabinet, 11.9 x 7.4 x 3.9 cm
A BIG, super-rich specimen of solid azurite from one of the great azurite localities of the world (and perhaps the greatest mineral specimen locality in the world, for that matter) ! There are crystals to 2.5 cm here, as well as a couple of rosettes thrown in for good measure! Shaped like a flower, this is complete all around. It has fine deep blue color, not blackish. You do not see many azurites of this size from Tsumeb - in fact, very few indeed!
