ID: CC15610
An incredibly rare specimen of turquoise-sky-blue Willemite pseudomorphing after a group of vertically orientated azurite crystals.  Such a pseudomorph is hardly ever seen from Tsumeb and in this specimen, the Willemite crystals stand about 2.7 cm tall above a bed of blue and white Willemite which forms the base. Adding to the aesthetic are many pale lemon acicular mimetite crystals to a few mm in length. An almost one-off pseudomorph of Willemite after Azurite from Tsumeb.
