Malachite after Azurite, Tsumeb Mine, Namibia Miniature 2 x 3 x 4 cm $350. Online 7/22
Very sharp prismatic azurite crystals faithfully replaced by deep green velvety malachite with associated cerussite. There is an old hand-written label that goes with the piece that lists the country as the "Tsumeb D.S.W. Afrika" perhaps placing it with a Dutch collection or German. Original price is 50.- but one does not know the currency. Crystallized all the way around the specimen and no damage. Mined c. mid-1900s.
