Rosasite is a less common, but highly desirable zinc, copper carbonate from the Tsumeb Mine. This rich, well-shaped and fine combination specimen features vuggy, 3-dimensional matrix with blue-green, botryoidal rosasite in clusters or as individuals dispersed amongst nicely contrasting, sparkly, blocky calcite rhombs.
