SOLD Calcite with inclusions of Malachite, Chalcotrichite and unknown.
Tsumeb
Otjikoto Region, Namibia
1.7 x 1.8 x 1.6 CM (thumbnail)
price: $0
Worldwide mix summer

An incredible, crazy little Tsumeb thumbnail! A ball-like cluster of Calcite rhombs most of which are colored a cadmium yellow. In some other zones the color is deep red from included needle crystals of Chalcotrichite and a few are green from included Malachite. Malachite balls in chains along some areas add a nice green accent making a bright, very colorful specimen. In perfect condition damage wise, this is crystalized all around, a floater. It is not clear what is causing the Cadmium yellow color, it is not typical at all. Ex Hitchings collection dating to mid 1960 vintage. Unique.
