This specimen is priced in US dollars, all other prices are approximate.

ID: CC15849
A pleasing combination of very deep bottle-green Olivenite occurring as rounded crystal aggregates developed over a vein section of massive milky Quartz with small Quartz crystals covering both outer faces.  Quartz is a surprisingly uncommon mineral at Tsumeb, so making this association of Olivenite with Quartz an interesting specimen from this most famous of mines.
