Duftite Psudomorph Enargite

ID: CC2986

A curious specimen of Duftite with Goethite replacing bladed crystals of Enargite, from the Tsumeb Mine, Namibia. The pre-existing crystals of Enargite measure to 2.2cm, are completely pseudomorphed by a crystalline olive green Duftite and yellow-brown Goethite. The outer surface of the Enargite crystal are covered in a druse of Duftite crystals. There has been a later deposition of white Cerussite crystals measuring to 1.1cm. A fascinating psuedomorph from the mine.
