Stranksiite (Tl)
Miniature, 3.3 x 1.8 x 1.1 cm
Tsumeb Mine, Tsumeb, Otjikoto Region, Namibia
Cyan-blue, microcrystalline Stranskiite highlight this specimen. The largest portion of Stranksiite is nearly 8 mm long, and the mineral is actually translucent! Stranskiite is an ULTRA RARE zinc arsenate and Tsumeb is the Type Locality. For what it is, this Stranksiite miniature is superb.
