ID: CC4891

A cavity measuring up-to 1.5cm x 0.2cm is seen on the specimen lined with micro-crystals of Molybdofornacite, from the type locality at the Tsumeb Mine, Namibia. Crystals of Molybdofornacite are very lustrous gemmy-translucent with an intense neon yellow-green colour. Associated with green Duftite. Well developed crystals of emerald green Dioptase are clustered and scattered over the white Willemite and red brown Goethite matrix. A couple of other areas on the specimen also have rare crystals of Molybdofornacite. A rare mineral.
