Azurite, Smithsonite
Tsumeb Mine (Tsumcorp Mine), Tsumeb, Otjikoto (Oshikoto) Region, Namibia
Miniature, 3.3 x 2.3 x 1.8 cm
A very aesthetic Tsumeb miniature of a superbly placed, 1.4 cm, lustrous, doubly terminated, midnight-blue azurite crystal on beautifully contrasting white smithsonite. The sharp, upright azurite crystal looks just like the primary crystal on a diadem and the smaller azurites are a very nice accent. Ex. Rob Smith Collection.
