ID: CC1835

A very rich stunning specimen of the rare Zinc Arsenite Leiteite from the classic type locality at Tsumeb Mine. This terrific specimen forms a slightly tapering almost columnar assemblage of foliated Leiteite, measuring to 3cm tall by 2.6cm by 2.2cm. The luster is highly pearlescent, with translucent white to tinted pink colour. The Leiteite has formed on an iridescent grey sulphide matrix. The richness of the specimen says more than enough for itself.
