Willemite on Willemite
Tsumeb Mine, Tsumeb, Otjikoto Region, Namibia
Small Cabinet, 7.3 x 4.9 x 3.3 cm
Ex. Martin Zinn

This is an exceptionally rare style of willemite found only once here, and seldom seen available for sale. Deeply saturated, discrete, spherical aggregates of glassy and gemmy, aquamarine-colored willemite (to 7mm) are perched on stalactitic red-brown willemite, accented with rhombs of lustrous white dolomite to 1 mm across. The combination and contrast of two colors of willemite is unique and beautiful. They are lustrous and bright. From the collection of Martin Zinn, sold in 2003.
