Tsumeb Mine, Tsumeb, Namibia
Thumbnail, 2.1 x 1.6 x 1.5 cm
Ex. Charlie Key
Tsumeb anglesites are uncommon, and few are colorful! Of competition quality, this specimen showcases a pristine, spear-like crystal of lustrous and translucent, rich golden-colored anglesite on matrix. The crystal measures 2 cm in length. This anglesite exhibits the richest color of any we have seen from here, for yellow,, approaching even the more modern Moroccan pieces but obviously very different in form. An old specimen, from the Charlie Key thumbnail collection.
