Originating from the Rock Currier collection is this very rich and attractive Tsumcorite miniature. It is loaded with numerous orange-yellow clusters composed of translucent thinly bladed crystals 2 mm in length, set on a contrasting brown-red Hematite(?)-stained matrix. Minor wulfenites seem to be present on close inspection, as a bonus. Tsumcorite is a very rare lead-zinc-iron arsenate and Tsumeb is of course the type locality for the species. Ex.
