A pleasing combination of minerals from the mineralogically complex Tsumeb Mine, Namibia. The specimen is covered in a fine druse of rice grain habit white-colourless-pastel green Smithsonite, with groups of acicular yellow-white crystals of Mimetite. A single smoky crystal of Cerussite measuring to 1cm sits at middle base of the specimen. The specimen is then topped off by rich green rounded crystals and clustered of Duftite. A fine specimen for para-genesis study from Tsumeb.
