Item Description

Tsumebite is a rather rare Lead Copper Phosphate Sulfate and is only found from a few world localities. It is obviously named after the famous Tsumeb mine in Namibia. This piece is a good reference specimen of featuring a few green micro crystal aggregates of Tsumebite on matrix. If nothing else, it is a unique collector's specimen from this secondary ore mineral locality in California.
