Covellite on Anglesite
Tsumeb Mine, Tsumeb, Otjikoto Region, Namibia
Miniature, 4.2 x 3.6 x 2.2 cm
Ex. Marshall Sussman
Splendant miniature consisting of dark, lustrous Anglesite crystals, either exposed or coated by iridescent Covellite. The largest, sharp Anglesite is about 1.5 cm long, and is very sharp with excellent luster. The largest of the coated crystals is about 2 cm long, and the rich, iridescent gunmetal-blue Covellite is really quite eye-catching. An excellent combination piece, and even better in person. From the Sussman collection.
