Rosasite on Willemite

ID: CC2518

Sparkling lustrous specimen of translucent light blue Willemite showing a crystal druse to botryoidal surface, The translucency of the specimen is absolutely beautiful when back lite.  Light blue-green Botryoidal Rosasite is seen clustered over most of the central area of the specimen. The reverse of the Willamite is completely covered in a druse of translucent grey-white Dolomite. A specimen that appears to actually be a rare Willemite cast, not dissimilar from the classic Dolomite casts from the Tsumeb Mine.
