Rosasite, Dolomite
Tsumeb Mine (Tsumcorp Mine), Tsumeb, Otjikoto (Oshikoto) Region, Namibia
Small Cabinet, 7.5 x 4.4 x 3.7 cm
An old-time, very showy Tsumeb specimen of blue-green rosasite richly covering one side of a very 3-dimensional matrix of sparkly dolomite, which is probably zinc rich. Rosasite of this quality and combination is RARELY available from Tsumeb. The contrast is striking. Ex. Rob Smith Collection, a noted Tsumeb specialist.
