Cadmian Willemite With Duftite

ID: CC1534

The specimen consists of a druse of stubby prismatic crystals of canary yellow Cadmium rich Willemite (to 2mm), which is dusted with botryoidal to subhedral prismatic crystals of dark green Duftite (to 1mm). One side of the specimen is more richly invested in Duftite than the other. Interestingly the Duftite rich side has a darker yellow colouration to the Willemite. The two minerals contrast well against each other and make for an attractive miniature.
