Bayldonite ps. after Mimetite

$750.00   €632  £570.00 approx.  

This specimen is priced in US dollars, all other prices are approximate.

ID: CC20342
Intense deep lime-green Bayldonite pseudomorphing after parallel 3.1 cm long rod-like crystals of Mimetite from Tsumeb mine in the Oshikoto Region of Namibia.  Attached to this is a 2.0 x 1.5 x 0.5 sliver of Quartz, itself coated in a fine surface layer of Bayldonite.  It must be mentioned that more recent research indicates such specimens are likely to be Arsentsumebite after Mimetite, but the label adheres to that of the original description.  No matter what, a great pseudomorph from Tsumeb.
