Azurite, Bayldonite, Malachite
Tsumeb Mine (Tsumcorp Mine), Tsumeb, Otjikoto (Oshikoto) Region, Namibia
Miniature, 4.1 x 3.1 x 2.2 cm
An absolutely stunning, and rare, old-time specimen from the Tsumeb Mine. Here are striking blue, razor-sharp crystals of azurite, on a backdrop of moss-colored botryoidal bayldonite (Hydrated Copper Lead Arsenate Hydroxide) which has coated botryoidal malachite. The contrast between the azurites and bayldonite is just so striking.
