Malachite, Dolomite (Var: Cobaltoan Dolomite), Cerussite
Small Cabinet, 6.7 x 6.3 x 3.1 cm
Tsumeb Mine (Tsumcorp Mine), Tsumeb, Otjikoto (Oshikoto) Region, Namibia
An excellent crust of crinkly/crusty, two-toned green, primary malachite on a bit of sparkly cobaltoan dolomite that also hides a couple of glassy cerussite crystals. This is a very nice surprise on the back. Primary malachite of this style is uncommon from Tsumeb and this is a rich specimen. Ex. Rob Smith Collection.
