Schaurteite, a calcium-germanium sulphate, is a very rare species from its type locality at Tsumeb and specimens are few and far between.  In this superb specimen, Schaurteite occurs over a 1.0 x 0.9 cm square area at one end of a granular metallic matrix of, likely, mixed Germanite, Renierite and Tennantite, based on colours and iridescent properties.  The Schaurteite forms micro-fibrous silky sprays of white acicular needles, all intergrown to form a dense mat.  A fabulous specimen of this very rare Ca-Ge mineral.
