4601186) Tarbuttite - Skorpion Mine, Rosh Pinah, Luderitz District, Karas Region, Namibia
Size: 7.0 x 5.5 x 4.0 cm (small cabinet)
Price: $ 1250 (=~ AUS$ 1219)
Green slightly frosty fan-like aggregates of tarbuttite crystals to 2.0 cm across are nicely covering a 7.0 x 5.5 x 4.0 cm matrix. I can find sparse micro-chipping in one area; overall I think this in very fine condition. Excellent for the species.
