Goethite is a well-known common secondary mineral at Tsumeb, but rarely forms attractive specimens.  This example certainly bucks this trend!  Superb, slightly distorted spheres to 1.4 cm diameter of semi-lustrous black Goethite form a grape-like cluster on a mixed matrix of rusty Limonite and 1 mm rhombohedral Calcite crystals.  Some of the Goethite spheres are broken to reveal a shell of radiating Goethite micro-crystals with a hollow interior lined with transparent glassy Calcite crystals.  A well-priced and excellent small miniature of Goethite from Tsumeb.
