Description: CALCITE
Tsumeb Mine, Otjikoto Region, Namibia
A fine example of large Calcite rhombohedral crystals. The size and habit of this specimen and it's color indicate that it is probably from the famous Tsumeb Mine in the Otjikoto Region of Namibia. The Tsumeb mine may have produced more sought after collector pieces than any other mine in the world. Most major collections include at least a one or a few fine Tsumeb specimens but they are much harder to find now because the mine has been closed for many years. A fine and unusual example, it measures 6 1/8 x 4 1/2 x 3 inches.
