Tsumeb Mine (Tsumcorp Mine), Tsumeb, Otjikoto (Oshikoto) Region, Namibia
An old-time, very rich and showy combination specimen from the Tsumeb Mine. Finely reticulated, snowflake cerussite crystals artfully cover one side of the specimen. The matrix is solid, banded, botryoidal smithsonite of various colors and the back is the apple-green color varietal. This is a very fine and highly representative Tsumeb combination piece from the upper oxidized zone of this renowned locale.
