Mimetite, Willemite
Tsumeb Mine (Tsumcorp Mine), Tsumeb, Otjikoto (Oshikoto) Region, Namibia
Small Cabinet, 6.5 x 3.3 x 2.2 cm
Glassy, translucent, yellow mimetite crystals richly and very aesthetically cover both sides of the narrow, two-sided willemite crust on this fine combination specimen from the Tsumeb Mine. The sharp crystals reach 1.2 cm and several of the crystals are doubly terminated, including the largest crystals. The sparkly, off-white and green willemite is a fine compliment.
