ID: CC4014
A fine cabinet specimen of bubbly, botryoidal Willemite from the Tsumeb Mine, Namibia. Translucent pastel duck egg blue to pastel minty green tinted Willemite occurs as hemispherical and near spherical crystals averaging 0.5 to 0.8 cm diameter. To a large extent the Willemite has overgrown a previous deposition of dark green Duftite on and in a reddish Dolomite matrix. Patchy colourless to white crystals of Dolomite have developed in areas on the Willemite. The Willemite has a micro-crystalline sparkling surface and together with the complexity of colour variations makes a remarkably good specimen.
