Item Description

An OLD-TIME, CLASSIC combination specimen from the famous and now-closed Tsumeb Mine. Highly lustrous, azure-blue azurite blades to 1.3 cm are richly and aesthetically strewn across the top of solid, massive, green bayldonite. This is very rich lead, copper ore. Definitely from the upper oxidized levels of this historic mine, as evidenced by the old, handwritten label in German. Valued at $900-1200.
