Mimetite, Cerussite
Tsumeb Mine (Tsumcorp Mine), Tsumeb, Otjikoto (Oshikoto) Region, Namibia
Miniature, 3.8 x 3.5 x 2.3 cm
A UNIQUE, unusual and very SHOWY, two-sided Tsumeb pseudomorph! A RICH, HOLLOW cluster lustrous, yellow mimetite crystals has pseudomorphed a star-shaped, cyclically-twinned cerussite crystal!! The bladed bit of gossan matrix at the base adds a superb contrast. This unique specimen is essentially pristine and comes with a pre 1982 label. It is hard to put a value on this amazing and rare Tsumeb perimorph, where the shape of the cerussite is preserved.
