Item Description

Gem-like, water-clear, calcite rhombs with fabulous, striated/stepped-growth faces are aesthetically strewn across the sculptural, CABINET, gossan matrix on this showy and excellent specimen from the famous and now-closed Tsumeb Mine. The large, perched rhomb is 1.7 cm and many of the rhombs are included with green mottramite, which really adds character. Classic material from this renowned locale. MUCH BETTER IN PERSON.
