Agardite (Ce) on Calcite & Quartz
stock #15.1-298
Tsumeb
Otjikoto Region, Namibia
5.7 x 3 x 2.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $350
Post Tucson 2015

The rare Cerium bearing Copper Arsenate mineral Agardite from Tsumeb was found on the 30th level several years ago. This specimen is a fairly rich example with eye visible zones and with a little Duftite as well. The matrix is scattered on several sides with sprays of micro radiating Agardite crystals. The Calcite crystals are rhombohedral form and have unknown inclusions. Not really a cabinet display specimen as the Agardites are so tiny as all are, but nice under the microscope, this piece could make many micromounts.
