Small Cabinet, 9.0 x 8.5 x 5.2 cm
CERTAINLY, one of the most DESIRABLE and RARE Tsumeb pseudomorphs is a DOUBLE-replacement such as this. This EXCELLENT and very SHOWY rosasite after malachite after azurite specimen is LARGE and is RICHLY covered with multi-hued, turquoise-colored pseudos on quartz matrix. The STRIKING, 1.7 cm, doubly terminated crystal in the center of the vug is focal point of this outstanding piece. There are even a few, tiny, glassy cerussites scattered about as an accent. SELDOM available in this quality and size. Ex. George Elling Collection and CLASSIC material seldom seen, especially in cabinet sized specimens.
