Tsumeb Mine (Tsumcorp Mine), Tsumeb, Otjikoto (Oshikoto) Region, Namibia
SOLD

A fine, large, old-time, matrix cluster of intergrown, cyclically-twinned cerussite crystals from the Tsumeb Mine. This is an excellent, two-sided twin of a size and quality that only comes from older, recycled collections. The glassy, slightly beige-colored crystals have fine aesthetics and the large, downward-pointing, "arm" is 4.0 cm long. A large, significant, and just a classic for its type: cyclically-twinned cerussite from the renowned locale. The green microcrystals are probably duftite. Accompanied by an older, faded and torn label. Ex. John Ydren collection from Los Angeles.
