A choice and attractive Tsumeb specimen. A flower-like cluster of sharp Malachite pseudo after Azurite crystals is nicely perched on mounds of sharp well crystallized green Duftite. These are sizable (for the specie) and they are perched on what looks to be Mimetite and some Cerussite with a few gem clear Calcite crystals, a tuft of Rosasite and a few other micros of related species. This is the kind of elegant and complex mixing of diverse species and crazy chemistry that makes Tsumeb minerals so incredible. In fine condition, displays well and a real treat under the microscope.
