- Willemite (stalactites)
- Small Cabinet, 6.1 x 4.7 x 4.6 cm
- Tsumeb Mine, Otjikoto Region, Namibia
- Ex. Shields and Frances Flynn
Highlighted by parallel, stalactitic growth, several vertical 'chimneys' of lustrous, ocherous willemite, to 4 cm in length, are nicely arranged on matrix. It is nearly complete and 360: One growth has been cleaved but does not materially affect the overall quality of the specimen. An interesting, highly unusual specimen! Often mislabeled as smithsonite.
