ID: CC16369
Calcite is a common mineral from the Tsumeb mine in the Oshikoto Region (formerly Otjikoto Region) of Namibia, but this stunning specimen would certainly hold its own in any Tsumeb or Calcite collection. A single perfect rhombohedral Calcite crystal measuring 2.5 x 2.7 x 3.3 cm along its edges has a fascinating cloudy interior of off-white, light to medium grey and pinkish-dirty-red, with razor-sharp edges and highly lustrous faces. The crystal sits amongst Dolomite shards coated with pale powder-green to bright lime green Conichalcite. A superbly aesthetic specimen from Tsumeb.
