Rare crystals of Cumengeite on a translucent Selenite matrix with green Paratacamite. The main crystal is 7mm wide but there are many more small crystals present. This specimen was in the personal collection of the mine manager who collected it in 1971 and just released it for sale. It is very rare to find a matrix Cumengite specimen!
