ID: CC15546
A fantastic miniature which packs a punch well above its weight!  Intergrown crystals of tetragonal Tennantite are dusted earthy light leaf-green and lemon-yellow with micro-crystals of Duftite and Mimetite with greyish-white Dolomite crystals. Over these are many highly reflective, Wulfenite crystals of bright metallic lustre, as bevelled square tabular crystals. This contrast of habits, colours and lustres combine to form a terrific specimen from the classic Tsumeb mine in Namibia.
