As the list of species suggests, this is one very busy specimen from Tsumeb with lots going on! It is unusual in that it is a highly brecciated jumble of many component parts, indicating an already mineralized cavity or vein that has undergone tectonic comminution followed by re-cementation.  The matrix is a re-cemented mass of angular lime-green Arsentsumebite; bright lime-green Gartrellite; leaf-green Malachite; inky-blue Azurite and dark-grey Dolomite. Overgrowing this are small groups of Arsentsumebite pseudomorphing after Mimetite; Malachite pseudomorphing after Azurite; drusy clusters of electric-blue Azurite crystals, earthy acidic lime-green Gartrellite and equant dark crystals of Olivenite.
