Miniature, 4.5 x 3.7 x 2.9 cm
Beaverite is a rare sulfate worldwide, but is very rare at Tsumeb. This is a very RICH specimen of earthy, yellow-green beaverite encrusting matrix and nicely accented by a scattering of cerussite crystals. This outstanding piece was found near the famous mimetite Gem Pocket of 1971 in the lower levels of the mine. Ex. Rob Smith Collection.
