Ludlockite is another of the ULTRA-RARE, Holy Grail mineral species for which the Tsumeb Mine is renowned and the Type Locality. This very fine thumbnail is a solid, bright coppery red-orange, matted nest of soft, felt-like, acicular ludlockite needles. Very highly representative of this rare arsenate species. Ultra rich specimen.
