Azurite on Cuprian Smithsonite

ID: CC1683

An fantastic specimen of Azurite on Cuprian Smithsonite from the ultimate mineral producing location of Tsumeb mine, Namibia. The Cuprian Smithsonite beautifully lines the display face of the specimen as a druse of spiky crystals. Aesthetically enhanced by a stellate formation of deep blue bladed crystals of Azurite toward the top of the specimen, the Azurite crystals measuring to 2.2cm. Towards one side of the specimen there is a cavity displaying blocky crystals of Cuprian Smithsonite, which have alternating white to green unusual banding. The matrix is a light coloured mixture of white Cerussite and pastel green Cuprian Smithsonite. A cracker of a specimen from this famous mine.
