Ex. Shields and Frances Flynn
This aesthetic cluster is composed of three vertical crystals of deep-green, attractive Arsentsumebite pseudomorphed after Mimetite. The largest crystal measures just over 1 cm in length. This specimen is clearly competition quality. A photo of this very fine thumbnail may be seen on page 15 in 'Minerals of Namibia' by Shields and Frances Flynn. Balanced, and a fine thumbnail of this rare item.
