ID: CC21224
The combination of rhombohedral Calcite crystals with orientated coatings and inclusions of the lead-copper arsenate Duftite are well known and common from the Tsumeb mine in Namibia, yet this small cabinet specimen leaps out as a particularly fine example because of the sharp angularity of the Calcite crystals; their mirror-like glassy edges and sides and the beautiful differing shades of Duftite, from bracken fern green faces to bright apple green edges.  A beautiful Tsumeb Calcite with Duftite which will fit comfortably in any Tsumeb collection, be this a beginner or seasoned collector.
