This specimen is priced in US dollars, all other prices are approximate.

ID: CC15556
A glassy and lustrous, 7 x 4 mm crystal of the very rare lead arsenate Schultenite sits prominently at one end of a magnificent bed of superbly crystallised, mid to deep emerald-green Zincolivenite (formerly named Cuproadamite).  Tsumeb mine is the type locality for Schultenite.  The Zincolivenite forms sharp pointed gemmy crystals to around 8 to 10 mm.  Also occurring on top of the Zincolivenite is a small cluster of milky Quartz crystals and very minor, micro-granular, grey Leadhillite.  The Schultenite is semi-transparent and although colourless, does give occasional internal flashes of iridescent light-blue.  The underlying matrix is a dark grey fine-textured mixed ore.  This specimen comes with a University of Delaware Mineralogical Museum label.  On the back of the label someone has written “look for keyite” as this is commonly associated with this assemblage; however, no keyite can be seen.
