Willemite with Dolomite

ID: CC32527
A most attractive thumbnail of sea-green Willemite in an enveloping matrix of snow-white Dolomite from Tsumeb mine in the Oshikoto Region of Namibia.  Willemite is a zinc silicate and forms an undulating, botryoidal surface composed of micro-crystals whose terminations create a silky lustre.  Under SWUV the Dolomite fluoresces bright marmalade orange.
