Olivenite

ID: CC2345

A cracker of a specimen displaying large Olivenite crystals from the Tsumeb Mine. The miniature Olivenite forms a tight group of sub-parallel divergent crystals, sharply terminated with a distinctive bladed habit. The pleasing deep olive-green Olivenite has a fine lustre. The crystals have formed on minutely botryoidal greenish-yellow Duftite. A wonderful specimen of Olivenite from the Tsumeb Mine, labelled as mined in 1983.
