Dolomite cast with Calcite (Ref: 16.1-308)

Tsumeb, Otjikoto Region, Namibia
43mm x 34mm x 22mm
minID: 39V-6TF
$120
One of the many odd but amazing things found over the years in Tsumeb were hollow Dolomite casts. These are replacements or encrustations of earlier minerals which have since disappeared. Sometimes the casts have then been overgrown with other minerals as well. The forms are quite diverse and entire collections have been made of the many shapes, colors and associations. This miniature cast is a pale green color and is overgrown with gem clear, colorless Calcite rhombs. The walls are typically thin and the whole specimen is a delicate hollow structure. Looks great from any angle, an attractive example of a mineral oddity.
