Aragonite var Tarnowitzite

$450.00   €400  £340.00 approx.  

This specimen is priced in US dollars, all other prices are approximate.

ID: CC8776
Lustrous white crystals of Tarnowitzite, the lead-rich variety of Aragonite, measuring to nearly 1 cm form a radiating hedgehog-like cluster at one end of the specimen.  This is rather unusually associated with micro-crystalline blue Azurite on a vuggy Dolomitic matrix mixed with massive granular Tarnowitzite.  A terrific miniature from the world famous Tsumeb mine in the Oshikoto Region of Namibia, accompanied with a Dr Walter Siegl label.
