A shockingly fat and well-formed, almost freestanding large crystal dominates this piece. The major crystal is 2.5 cm tall, 2 cm wide, and 6 mm thick...very robust and unusual for Tsumeb. It is nearly pristine save for the most minute of dings, and sits perfectly on a natural perch of smaller wulfenite crystals. When backlit, it has a rich ruddy-brown color to it, and you can see even in normal lighting here it is translucent. For the locality, a significant specimen, I would say.
