Great azurites always come to mind when mentioning ‘Tsumeb’. These deep blue , extremely sharp, complexly modified crystals are set off beautifully against contrasting Bayldonite microcrystals, making for a uniquely attractive thumbnail specimen that is very well-balanced as well. The crystal atop, almost 2 cm, is perfectly perched and fully terminated on each end, with the terms hanging out into space to show them off. This is a killer thumb from one of the world’s best localities , and is NOT your "average" azurite TN! Thus, it is priced accordingly for the discerning collector of competition-level thumbnails - not cheap to admit, but also not ridiculous either since it is EVEN BETTER IN PERSON 2.7 x 2 x 1.6 cm
