This is a fabulous Tsumeb Mimetite the likes of which is hardly ever seen. Ex. matrix, the lemon-tangerine coloured crystals are up to 5.7 cm tall, very large for this species at the Tsumeb mine in Namibia. The crystals have a micro-sucrosic textured white coating of Mimetite giving an aesthetic frosted appearance and where two crystals are broken to one side, exhibit hexagonal cross-sections and the pure colour of the Mimetite. An excellent Mimetite and one I feel quite remarkable and well-priced to boot.
