Anglesite
Tsumeb
Otavi-Bergland district, Oshikoto, Namibia
2.1 x 1.3 x .8CM (thumbnail)
price: $180
Pre Holiday 2017

A transparent Tsumeb Anglesite crystal with the look of a Moroccan specimen. Smokey cognac color and zoning a well as unknown inclusions add a nice look to this crystal. On close inspection the association of Chalcocite and Posnakite micros and the unusual face coatings confirm that this is from Tsumeb. Glassy and sharp, there is some light edge bruising but the crystal is complete and terminated. A less common form and habit this is an early vintage piece much better in person.
