ID: CC16109
A stunning thumbnail of sharp-edged rhombic Calcite crystals richly covered in a druse of bright leaf-green Duftite from the Tsumeb mine, Namibia. The Duftite is a delicious rich deep leafy lime green and its micro-crystalline texture gives the Calcite a sucrosic surface. Although buried behind many smaller Duftite coated Calcite crystals, the largest Calcite (seen from the back) is almost 2 cm tall. A single creamy white rhombic Calcite crystal is perched at the left of the display face. This lovely specimen comes on a small square acrylic base.
