ID: CC1501

A lustrous specimen of Mimetite from one of the classic locations at the Tsumeb Mine, Namibia. The specimen displays a flourish of finely acicular Mimetite crystals to 0.6cm long. The crystals sparkle from all vantage points, with a gemmy light yellow colouration. The Mimetite crystals are partly intergrown with naturally etched white Dolomite on a Fe-oxide reddened Quartz matrix. The Quartz is partly covered by yellow Fe-oxide replaced micro-rhombic crystals of Dolomite/Siderite, on which the Mimetite has mostly formed. Lovely!
