Tsumeb Mine (Tsumcorp Mine), Tsumeb, Otjikoto (Oshikoto) Region, Namibia
Toenail, 2.8 x 2.1 x 2.0 cm
A SUPERB and AESTHETIC mounded thumbnail cluster of Gem Pocket mimetite crystals from the ONE-TIME, 1971 find at the Tsumeb Mine. This is a very rich specimen of brilliant and gemmy, yellow-green mimetite crystals, considered to be the world's finest mimetites. Definitely considered to be one of the Holy Grail Tsumeb species and this is a REALLY GOOD ONE. Ex. George Elling Collection.
