SOLD Siderite - gemmy crystals in Germanite, Tsumeb
Tsumeb
Otjikoto Region, Namibia
4.8 x 3.9 x 2.2 CM (miniature)
price: $0
Pre Tucson

Although Siderite is a common mineral, it is quite rare from Tsumeb and gemmy crystals are very rare. This specimen is not very showy by naked eye but the massive Germanite ore hosts a vug with lustrous honey-yellow to orange color Siderite crystals. These are best viewed with magnification as the vug is just 1.3 CM across. A very nice addition to a comprehensive Tsumeb suite, I am told this was a limited find very deep in the mine near the end of production.
