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. The Willemite is quite heavily coated with cream and white micro-crystals of Calcite which give this miniature specimen an overall creamy-tan colour with patches of turquoise blue breaking through. Adding to the aesthetic are many pale lemon acicular Mimetite crystals to a few millimetres in length. An almost one-off pseudomorph of Willemite after Azurite from Tsumeb.
