Tsumeb Mine (Tsumcorp Mine), Tsumeb, Otjikoto (Oshikoto) Region, Namibia
Miniature, 4.5 x 4.5 x 3.5 cm
DOZENS of sharp, green-brown, lustorus beudantite crystals to 3 mm cover this matrix specimen, on almost all sides. Despite beng a "rare ugly" the piece as a whole really sparkles and has some eye appeal, and the crystals are readily eye-visible, making this a very fine display specimen for the species. Acquired 8-20-1986 from Joseph Pitsch, the town baker in Windhoek who acted as a broker for many mineral deals for the miners. 4.5 x 4.5 x 3.5 cm
