Dark, shiny cluster of descloizite crystals to over 2cm on a small amount of matrix. All of the crystals are well terminated, have deep color, and have no apparent damage, and are thus of exceptional quality. Great example of one of the less common Tsumeb minerals available? NO! This is why I show the label. THEY ARE NOT FROM TSUMEB but from Berg Aukas. Often, the miners there sold to dealers from Tsumeb and before you know it, everybody has a "tsumeb" descloizite. The errors persist commonly on the market to this day 20-30 years or more after the fact. Former Edna Doughty collection with label.
