One of the more famed Pseudomorphs from Tsumeb is Rosasite replacing Malachite that has replaces Azurite crystals. This is an excellent example with a thin outer zone of Rosasite that has several small Calcite rhombs sprinkled on the surface. Attractive and now quite uncommon, the main crystal is in perfect condition. Other crystals on the back and bottom side are broken showing the malachite core, does not affect display. A big thumbnail with a lot of good visual impact.
