Azurite, Dolomite, Malachite
Tsumeb Mine (Tsumcorp Mine), Tsumeb, Otjikoto (Oshikoto) Region, Namibia
Miniature, 4.6 x 4.3 x 3.1 cm
This is a dramatic specimen, very 3-dimensional, with sharp azurites to just under a centimeter wreathing the top of a knoll of crystallized dolomite matrix. Rounded botryoidal malachite covers the base for a nice accent and combination of the 3 colors here. The azurites are much better in person, as they are dark blue and lustrous. Ex. Harold Urish Collection.
