Malachite, Azurite, Cerussite
Small Cabinet, 5.9 x 5.1 x 3.1 cm
Tsumeb Mine (Tsumcorp Mine), Tsumeb, Otjikoto (Oshikoto) Region, Namibia
A fine, upright pair of malachite pseudomorphs after sharp, blocky azurite crystals from the Tsumeb Mine. The frontal faces of all the pseudomorphs are pristine, as are the terminations of the upright crystals. The specimen is richly sprinkled with glassy, reticulated cerussite crystals, which are a very nice accent. Classic, old-time material from this noted locale and the Rob Smith Collection.
