Calcite on Mottramite

$500.00   €423  £360.00 approx.  

This specimen is priced in US dollars, all other prices are approximate.

ID: CC13245
Excellent, sharply formed colourless intergrown rhombic crystals of Calcite measuring to 9 mm are developed over an olive to lime-green Mottramite matrix. This is a classic association from the Tsumeb mine in Namibia and towards the late 1980s such specimens were often seen at mineral shows. Sadly this is not the case today, making this a good opportunity to acquire such gemmy Calcite rhombs framed against velvety green Mottramite.
