ID: CC15580
Lustrous glassy curved blades of semi-transparent, colourless Calcite form a roughly spherical rosette.  The blades are lightly striated and beneath shows the point of attachment around what appears to be a small sulphide or sulphosalt mineral embedded in the Calcite.  Those faces of the Calcite rosettes with a specific orientation are completely coated with micro-crystals of pearly cream Dolomite.  These are subtly tinged delicate lime-green, probably the result of finely disseminated Duftite inclusions.  A great Calcite rosette from Tsumeb punctuated with lustrous Dolomite.
