A curious, little finger-sized (and shaped) stalactite of highly lustrous pale lilac Dolomite speckled with dark-green spheres of Mottramite to almost 1 mm diameter. From the Tsumeb mine in Namibia, the glassy Dolomite crystals form an outer skin to the Calcite core of the Stalactite.  A terrific and showy specimen from Tsumeb.
