A rather spectacular specimen from the Tsumeb mine in Namibia of stalactitic creamy Smithsonite in towering plumes to over 7 cm sprinkled with pale creamy-lemon clusters of Mimetite.  The Smithsonite occurs as drusy micro-spherules of intense lustre over the stalactitic structure and the Mimetite as curved acicular sprays to around 5 mm tall.  A showy and interesting Tsumeb specimen.
