ID: CC17562
A superb mixture of snow-white stubby crystals of Tarnowitzite, the lead-rich (plumbian) variety of Aragonite, with Malachite included Tarnowitzite crystals, forming a gently curved and spiky, hedgehog-like, mound.  A classic specimen from the Tsumeb mine in the Oshikoto Region (Otjikoto Region) of Namibia, the Malachite manifests as a bluish-peppermint green through the enclosing outer layer of Aragonite.  The largest Tarnowitzite crystals measure to just over 1 cm across and are of a similar length.  A festive combination indeed of snow-white and bluish-green Tarnowitzite and Malachite from Tsumeb.
