Azurite, Malachite
Tsumeb Mine (Tsumcorp Mine), Tsumeb, Otjikoto (Oshikoto) Region, Namibia
Miniature, 5.0 x 4.0 x 1.8 cm
An aesthetic Tsumeb specimen from the Dave Stoudt Collection. Sharp, blue-black azurite crystals, one with interesting gemmy highlights, are very attractively perched on the top edges of a fine cluster of malachite pseudomorphs after sharp, flattened azurite crystals. A bonus on the back are the small calcite rhombs. Excellent material from this famous and now-closed locale.
