Scorodite (Germanium level)
Tsumeb mine, Tsumeb, Otjikoto Region, Namibia
Miniature, 4.0 x 2.7 x 1.8 cm

This is a unique Tsumeb scorodite specimen from a small discovery made many years prior to the gemmy blue crystals, in the depths of the third oxide zone Germanium Level. This cluster is composed of translucent, sea green, resinous orthorhombic dipyramidal (pseudo-octahedral) crystals to 2cm on edge! It is an historically important specimen for Tsumeb! Very impressive crystal size on this miniature. A must for the serious Tsumeb collector! VERY FEW of these ever came to market. Translucent when backlit.
