Item Description

A very elegant and aesthetic thumbnail cluster of lustrous, translucent, striated, butterscotch-colored mimetite crystals from the famous and now-closed Tsumeb Mine. The large crystal is 1.5 cm and is doubly terminated. The tiny bit of contacting at the top of the piece has very minimal impact on the overall quality of this cutie. Highly representative of the species and locale. Ex Rob Smith Collection. Valued $100
