Willemite

ID: CC2371

An exceptional Willemite from the Tsumeb Mine, Namibia. The purely Willemite specimen is formed of intergrown connected spheres of radiating crystals and clusters of prismatic crystals. The spheres measure to 1.6cm in diameter, and the prismatic crystals to 0.6cm tall. The translucent tan coloured crystals have super bright lustre and the whole specimen is a sparkling composite of crystals spheres and crystal faces. A beauty of a specimen from a classic location, the gemminess and lustre really make it stand out. The specimen is purported to have come from the 10 level of the Tsumeb Mine.
