Tsumeb Mine, Tsumeb, Otjikoto Region, Namibia
Miniature, 4.1 x 2.6 x 1.8 cm
Rich and attractive cluster of lemon-cream Mimetite crystals, covering nearly the entire matrix. The Mimetites are crystallized in long slender crystals that taper towards the terminations. The largest is 1.4 cm long, and the luster is excellent. If you orient the piece upwards, the bottom is contacted, which is no surprise. One great benefit of the piece is that it can be displayed in any orientation, front to back. One side is rich with well-formed Mimetites, and the other displays more individual crystals. Either side has excellent aesthetics.
