ID: CC15441
An intriguing specimen of bubbly stalactitic Mottramite with a later partial covering of Calcite from the Tsumeb Mine, Namibia. Glistening light yellow-brown to pistachio green stalactites of Mottramite display a near parallel intergrown cluster measuring in overall height to 5.9cm. Sparsely covered on the 'display' side by colourless Calcite crystals, the reverse side is completely covered by a druse of Calcite crystals. At some time in the in-situ formation of the Mottramite, it was disrupted causing the specimen to become detached from the matrix. The specimen was then healed over the brakes by the Calcite.
