ID: CC15631
The lead arsenate chloride Mimetite crystallises at Tsumeb in an extremely wide range of habits, as demonstrated by this somewhat different dinky thumbnail.  What appears to be puffballs of cottonwool perching over a sooty-black microcrystalline matrix, is micro-acicular druses of creamy-white Mimetite, perhaps with just the slightest hint of pale lemon.  An unusual Mimetite and one which will nicely contribute yet another habit to a Tsumeb suite.
