ID: CC15444
A charming and choice miniature of rhombohedral Calcite crystals preferentially coated with micro Calcite rhombohedra, a delicate dusting of pale olive green Duftite and a rich sprinkling of 1 mm and sub-mm bluish-emerald-green Dioptase crystals. The underlying large Calcite crystals measure to 1.5 cm and are creamy-white with glassy pale-grey faces. Subsequent phases of mineralising fluids have deposited Duftite, followed by micro-crystals of Calcite and finally Dioptase, onto orientated faces of the relatively large Calcite crystals. A terrific and more unusual Tsumeb miniature.
