Cerussite (unusual color) with Duftite and Dolomite
Tsumeb
Otjikoto Region, Namibia
7.8 x 6.8 x 4.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $650
new year 2021

Cerussite crystals in several habits with an unknown inclusion that gives a yellow-orange color. The matrix is typically complex and very three-dimensional. Tsumeb Cerussites were found in every imaginable form and sometimes colored by inclusions. This color is very unusual, and we have not seen this before. Under strong magnification the inclusions appear to be fibrous and aligned along the crystal axis. With Tsumeb minerals mysteries are a big part of the fun. The condition of this piece is also remarkable, there is no damage even though the Cerussites are well-exposed and prominent.
