Bright emerald green chromium rich Vesuvianite crystal. These bright chrome green crystals were always much less common than the yellows and purples that were found here.  This mine is long closed and there will likely be no more found.  A hard to find, undamaged crystal with great color.

Transparent blue Fluorite cubes and Aresenopyrte crystals grown among glassy clear Quartz crystals. This is an older piece (about 20 years) reecently acquired out of a collection and has a distinct and different appearance that more recent specimens from this mine. There are also a few small Ferberite crystals present.

Unusual specimen of Mottramite that is either covering Quartz crystals or pseudomorphed after Quartz crystals. There is Quartz at the base of the specimen, but when I look closely at the bottoms of the crystals at the edge, I can see no Quartz in the cores, which leads me to believe the Quartz has been pseudomorphed to Mottramite.

Crystal cluster of Tennanite after Azurite from Tsumeb. Elongated, primatic crystals of former Azurite that have been pseudomorphed to Tennantite. An undamaged cluster with individual crystals to 7cm in length. This piece was mined from the first oxidation zone of Tsumeb. This type of pseudomorph only occurred at Tsumeb, and then only rarely.
