Tsumeb Mine (Tsumcorp Mine), Tsumeb, Otjikoto (Oshikoto) Region, Namibia
Small Cabinet, 6.0 x 4.3 x 3.8 cm
A rich and superb Tsumeb specimen of a 5.1 cm long band of very sparkly, forest-green olivenite microcrystals on a 3-dimensional matrix that includes brecciated anglesite. The olivenite is nicely complimented by ochre-colored mottramite. This is definitely old-time material from the upper oxidized zone of this renowned and now-closed mine. Ex. Consie Prince Collection and is accompanied by a 1970s-early 1980s label.
