Wulfenite, Mimetite
Tsumeb Mine (Tsumcorp Mine), Tsumeb, Otjikoto (Oshikoto) Region, Namibia
Small Cabinet, 6.0 x 5.0 x 2.5 cm
A rare and fine combination plate from the Tsumeb Mine. Glassy, mostly transparent, smoky-colored wulfenite crystals with sharp beveled edges are richly and aesthetically scattered on the matrix. Bundles of lustrous, yellowish-tan mimetite are concentrated at the top of the piece and are a beautiful compliment. The largest wulfenite, at 9 mm, is aesthetically framed by two mimetite crystal clusters.
