Dolomite (Var: Cobaltoan Dolomite), Cerussite
Small Cabinet, 6.4 x 3.9 x 2.1 cm
Tsumeb Mine (Tsumcorp Mine), Tsumeb, Otjikoto (Oshikoto) Region, Namibia
A beautiful, vivid pink cobaltoan dolomite crust from Tsumeb with one side having the very rare association of glassy cerussite crystals. One cerussite cluster is a cyclic-twin and the other is a cluster of blades. This side is also sprinkled with cerussite microcrystals. We have never seen a pink Tsumeb dolomite with cerussite before. You usually see wulfenite crystals. Ex. Wes Parker Collection.
