Mottramite
Small Cabinet, 6.6 x 4.9 x 2.9 cm
Tsumeb Mine (Tsumcorp Mine), Tsumeb, Otjikoto (Oshikoto) Region, Namibia
SOLD
From the Tsumeb collection of Rob Smith, a thin, hollow cast (perimorph) of moss-green mottramite that formed over crystals of calcite. Now the calcite is all etched away, leaving just the delicate shell of mottramite, retaining the form of the calcite crystals that once were underneath!
