One of the most attractive Calcites that I?ve seen from Tsumeb in this size, and one of my favorite specimens in the entire update. This piece features very light pink, compressed rhombohedra of Calcite with striking serrated edges and thousands of gorgeous stepped striations forming a fantastic large cabinet crystal group. Except for the periphery, virtually all of the crystals are damage free. The individual rhombs on this piece are very good sized as well, and take my word for it, the piece looks better than the photos indicate.

Calcite

Locality: Tsumeb mine, Tsumeb, Otjikoto Region, Namibia

Specimen Size: 10.8 x 9.0 x 7.5 cm (cabinet)


ex.  Rob Smith


A nice cabinet specimen featuring very sharp, lustrous, gemmy (water-clear in areas) colorless rhombohedra of Calcite on matrix. The largest rhomb is contacted on the side where it clearly detached from the pocket wall, but the piece remains a very good quality Tsumeb Calcite.

Calcite on Quartz

Locality: Tsumeb mine, Tsumeb, Otjikoto Region , Namibia

Specimen Size: 12.2 x 5.0 x 4.3 cm (cabinet)
Largest Calcite/Quartz: 1.7 cm.


ex.  Rob Smith


Two of the most common species on the planet, yet not often seen from Tsumeb. You can clearly see the form of the prismatic Quartz crystals which have been completely coated (possibly replaced?) by white lustrous Calcite rhombohedra sitting on matrix. A more than reasonably priced cabinet size display piece of this association.

Calcite with Mottramite

Locality: Tsumeb mine, Tsumeb, Otjikoto Region, Namibia

Specimen Size: 7.8 x 5.5 x 4.5 cm (small cabinet)
Largest Calcite rhomb: 3.2 cm.


ex.  Rob Smith


This beauty of a small cabinet features a few isolated, sharp, lustrous, gemmy, well-formed, rhombohedra of Calcite with some attractive black fibrous inclusions as well as red Hematite which are associated with green Mottramite on matrix. The Calcites are very good shape, with only a tiny amount of rough spots. The overall balance and aesthetics make it one of the best Calcites in the update.

Calcite on Duftite on Calcite

Locality: Tsumeb mine, Tsumeb, Otjikoto Region, Namibia

Specimen Size: 12.0 x 12.2 x 5.6 cm (cabinet)


ex.  Paul Lazar
ex.  Rob Smith


A true Tsumeb classic! This is a gorgeous and sculptural display specimen consisting of a plate of large, white Calcite rhombohedra which are covered by a rich green carpet of Duftite, but to top it off, the piece has additional white Calcite rhombs on TOP of the Duftite ! One does not often encounter a piece with Duftite sandwiched in between Calcite like this. The specimen is in amazing shape overall, and it is easily one of my favorite pieces of this rare association that I have seen. Duftite and Calcite really just seem to go together, don?t they?

Calcite

Locality: Tsumeb mine, Tsumeb, Otjikoto Region, Namibia

Specimen Size: 5.4 x 5.4 x 3.2 cm (small cabinet)


ex.  Rob Smith


Beautiful, angelic, white, stacked Calcite rhombs have formed into columnar or stalactitic formations which are associated with minor green Dufite and a bit of matrix. A less common form for Calcite from Tsumeb.

Calcite on Mottramite

Locality: Tsumeb mine, Tsumeb, Otjikoto Region, Namibia

Specimen Size: 8.1 x 5.6 x 3.0 cm (small cabinet)


ex.  Rob Smith


What a gorgeous Calcite, not only for the crystals themselves, but for the beautiful matrix on which the crystals rest. This piece features attractive, sharp, highly lustrous, gemmy, colorless, compressed rhombohedra of Calcite with prominent striated faces and serrated edges. If that were not enough, these crystals are sitting atop elegant, flowing dendritic and botryoidal, bright olive green color Mottramite. This specimen is in great condition, and I think it?s a superb Tsumeb Calcite for the price. Largest Rhombohedron: 2.0 cm.
