Schneiderhohnite is a ferric-ferrous iron arsenite and Tsumeb is the type locality for this mineral where it was found associated with Germanite ore. From the Flynn collection, this is another amazing specimen from Tsumeb's germanium level, which featured a host of amazing mineral species in large crystals that you will never see from anywhere else. This display-sized large specimen features LARGE and sharp, well-displayed crystals of Schneiderhohnite! A cluster of several large, complete, sub-metallic, triclinic Schneiderhohnite crystals to 1.2cm grace the top of this piece along with several substantial crystal cleavages to 2.0cm in length. These impressive Schneiderhohnites from Tsumeb are the best-of-species. A very rich and superb piece of this species. Ex. Grosch and Shield and Frances Flynn collection with label. Most surviving specimens of this species are thumbnails. THIS ONE is a large miniature, that sits well and shows off the cluster atop. It is the best we have seen on market in nearly two decades. It must be among the richer, larger examples of the species to survive.
