Calcite is widely distributed throughout the Tsumeb orebody and as is typical of this species, it occurs at this mine in countless habits.  If say, in a good Tsumeb collection, Calcites are displayed as a group, their variance can be quite remarkable and spectacular.  This delightful thumbnail is dominated by a 1.9 x 1.9 x 1.2 cm equant hexagonal Calcite crystal of translucent smoky pale tan, perched on a few-mm thick rib of matrix coated with micro-crystals of Calcite.  A few intermediate sized Calcite crystals reside on the back of the specimen.  A terrific equant and complex Calcite from Tsumeb.
