ID: CC8286

This matrix-less specimen from the Tsumeb Mine in Namibia is composed of intergrown crystals of Wulfenite, Quartz, Dolomite and Malachite. The Wulfenite forms flattened tabular crystals with bevelled edges, the largest of which is 1.9 mm on edge. Their colour is generally a mustard-tan, but all crystals are heavily included with black disseminated sulphides, giving some of the Wulfenite crystals yellowish-black appearance. The Dolomite occurs as white, curved micro-rhombohedral crystals and the Quartz as micro-crystals and shards. The Malachite is distributed all over the specimen as leaf-green to bluish-green sub-millimetre spheres.
