Azurite, Bayldonite
Tsumeb Mine (Tsumcorp Mine), Tsumeb, Otjikoto (Oshikoto) Region, Namibia
Small Cabinet, 6.9 x 6.0 x 4.5 cm
An old-time, classic combination specimen from the Tsumeb Mine. Highly lustrous, azure-blue azurite blades to 1.3 cm are richly and aesthetically strewn across the top of solid, massive, green bayldonite. This is very rich lead, copper ore. Definitely from the upper oxidized levels of this historic mine, as evidenced by the old, handwritten label in German.
