A neat specimen from the Tsumeb Mine having two generations of Azurite, the first crystals of Azurite completely pseudomorphed by varied shades of velvety lustre green Malachite measuring to 2cm. In turn, the second generation of unaltered Azurite crystals has formed on the Malachite replaced Azurite but still retain the crystal orientation of the Azurite in epaxial habit. Crystals of Azurite have formed on a creamy crystalline Smithsonite, a fine Tsumeb Mine specimen.
