Tarnowitzite (Tsumeb, Namibia)
Tsumeb Mine, Otjikoto Region, Nambia. 40mm x 20mm x 15mm.
Tarnowitzite is a lead bearing form of Aragonite that was found within the first oxidization zone at Tsumeb. They are unique, rare and pretty impressive (our opinion as we do love Tsumeb..) This little specimen has two of them on the matrix and they both certainly display very well.
