Small Cabinet, 9.0 x 7.3 x 1.7 cm
Tsumeb Mine, Otjikoto Region, Namibia
Ex. Shields and Frances Flynn
This is a solid plate of botryoidal, green-black, mottramite with silky luster with individual spheres, to 1 cm in length. For what it is, it is actually a very good display specimen for Tsumeb! Usually the mottramite here is just a coating or association whereas this is a rich, displayable specimen with some interesting shape.
