Quartz on Chrysocolla (Scorpion Zinc Mine, Namibia)
Scorpion Zinc Mine, Namibia. 110mm x 90mm x 40mm.
The Chrysocolla has formed on a Arkose matrix with a higher than normal Malachite content. The secondary Quartz growth has taken place in a very thin layer over the Chrysocolla. These few specimens came out from Scorpion in 2017, not many have come out thereafter and they are truly striking specimens from this unique locality. They are very pretty indeed.
