Azurite with Arsentsumebite, Malachite etc.
Otjikoto Region, Namibia
6.1 x 4.8 x 3.6 CM (cabinet)
An extraordinary, esthetic Tsumeb Azurite with crystals in compound clusters much like flattened rosettes and curved prisms. Presents well from all sides and in perfect, undamaged condition. Similar in some ways to a few specimens we have seen with this habit from the famed Easter pocket, this piece is not attributed to that find but reportedly is from an older discovery. Far better in person, the blue is an intense deep hue that is almost impossible to render on a computer screen.
