Siderite with Goethite on Germanite

ID: CC18906
A quite gorgeous small display specimen of superbly crystallised Siderite richly covering lustrous black Goethite as acicular prismatic crystals on a silvery-grey Germanite matrix.  Based on my near forty years’ experience of Tsumeb minerals, the Goethite crystals are exceptionally good.  The Siderite is gemmy and forms well developed burnt-orange to deep lemon-yellow crystals of up to about 5 mm long.  The base of the specimen has a play of iridescent metallic rose-gold and bronze, a characteristic of Germanite.  The specimen is understatedly aesthetic and would certainly catch the eye in any Tsumeb display.
