Duftite

ID: CC1483

Sparkling lustrous crystals of rich green Duftite form an intergrown nest of crystals atop the specimen, from the famous Tsumeb Mine, Namibia. The crystal druse of Duftite measuring up to 4cm by 2cm is pleasingly contrasted on the pinkish Dolomite matrix. Tiny white mixed micro-crystals of Cerussite and Dolomite are seen aggregated in one area on the crystals of Dolomite. A number of cavities in the Dolomite matrix are also scattered with crystals of green Duftite. A neat specimen of this rare super-gene mineral from probably the best location.
