An interesting specimen, full of very good, model-shaped mimetite crystals on arsenopyrite. Arsenopyrite is very rare from Tsumeb. There are a lot of tiny arsenopyrite crystals on the back and a bigger one - about 0.4 cm- on the front. A few dings on a small part of the mimetite crystals, the rest is fine.
