Olivenite (Zn-rich) with Malachite, Mottramite on Cuprite

Tsumeb, Otjikoto Region, Namibia
minID: L13-QKE
98mm x 72mm x 27mm
A significant and exceptionally fine cabinet specimen of well-crystallized Olivenite-Zn from Tsumeb. The surface is densely covered with tabular hexagonal crystals which is a rare Olivenite habit typical of zinc rich varieties which is chemically very close to Cuprian Adamite. The crystals are clustered in rows, stacks, sheaves and rosettes. The condition is excellent and by naked eye perfect, 20X magnification finds just a few very tiny rub spots. The matrix is massive Cuprite and the esthetics, color and display quality are all top notch. This is an exceptional and important Tsumeb specimen that will be a fine addition for a top quality suite.
