Blue willemite specimens from Tsumeb are true classics of this famous locality and have been eagerly-sought by collectors and museums for over one hundred years. Rare on the contemporary market, these “hen’s teeth” specimens are a must-have for the serious Tsumeb or rarities collector. This fine older specimen features lustrous blue willemite spheres on a matrix of pearly white dolomite, a perfect contrast. The willemite has great color and good form. Mark Cross photos. Classic!!
