Mineral Spot: Duftite on Calcite...

I recently acquired a collection of micro-minerals (those that require light and magnification to enjoy). This is one of these.

It is a photo of duftite crystals (green) on calcite from the famous Tsumeb Mine in Namibia. The field of view in this image is approx 9mm. It now resides in a New Zealand collection.

It was sold on my auction website at OZtion.
