Gamsberg, Khomas Region, Namibia
Small Cabinet, 5.2 x 3.4 x 3.0 cm
A very fine specimen of the rare (for this location) Cuprotungstite. These clusters are composed of olive green tabular microcrystals. This is the first time I have seen this species even mentioned from Gamsberg. Often, Cuprotungstite is found after Scheelite, but since there is no Scheelite, I wonder if these exceptional pockets are primary. Either way, a strange locality for Cuprotungstite. Ex. Charlie Key stock.
