Item Description

Chatoyant, intergrown pseudomorphs of malachite after large azurite crystals form a showy and excellent, complete all-around specimen from the famous Tsumeb Mine. The dominating large pseudo is 5.2 cm and is doubly terminated. One side is richly intergrown with gray, drusy, cerussite. Some contacting is noted, but is a very modest detraction to this classic specimen. Ex Wes Parker Collection. Highly representative pseudo material from this renowned locale.
