Tsumeb Mine (Tsumcorp Mine), Tsumeb, Otjikoto (Oshikoto) Region, Namibia
Cabinet, 9.5 x 7.0 x 4.6 cm
This is a fine azurite from the Tsumeb Mine. Shiny, lustrous faces of azurite glint at you from every direction. It is beautiful and very three-dimensional. The display face has many lustrous crystals to nearly 2 cm, some with absolutely flat faces, some with interesting striations. Some faces have small patches of deep green malachite replacing the azurite which makes for a nice accent.
