Tsumcorite on Willemite

ID: CC1533

Lustrous botryoidal, with some elongated crystals, greyish blue Willemite crystals are scattered over the matrix. Between grows a cream coloured crust on which is scattered orange Tsumcorite crystals. The Tsumcorite - a rare Lead Arsenate - forms radiating clusters of crystals with aggregates to 3mm width. A very pretty specimen with lovely colour contrast of an unusual combination of minerals.
