SOLD
A superb, cabinet-sized specimen of lustrous, golden-brown, zinc-rich, siderite disks festooned on all sides on a shoe-shaped matrix. The backside of the piece is strikingly cavernous. Siderite is a common gangue mineral at the Tsumeb Mine, but seldom in this size and quality. Ex. Rob Smith Collection.
