Hi all Tsumeb mineral collectors,

-Are you a passionate of Tsumeb minerals ?
-Do you enjoy watching microcrystals under the microscope? Especially colorful landscapes of different species under the same field of view?
-Do you want to get extreme Tsumeb rarities that you don't find in other webs or Mineral Shows?
-Do you want to get some Tsumeb species that your friends have told about them but you haven't heard before ?
-Do you enjoy strange chemistries like germanium minerals?

If you answered yes most of the above questions, this is your auction !

http://www.e-rocks.com/Products.aspx?action=list&type=48913

This time extreme rarities like Reinerite (!!!) Calcioandyrobertsite+Stranskiite (!!!), Helmutwinklerite (!!!), Renierite (in crystals !!) Ovamboite(!!), Kegelite, Alamosite. Molybdofornacite, Thometzekite, Zincgartrellite, Keyite, Koritnigite, Heterogenite, Luzonite, Tsumcorite, Ludlockite, Carminite, Cuprite included in cerussite, etc. are all in the same auction and some of them have never auctioned before in e-rocks !

Incredibly, some Tsumeb specialists/collectors interested in these rarities don't make anything to get these minerals. I hope you don't be one of them!

It is not necessary to bid now, you have one week to do it.
Good luck when you bid!

And also, please check my new web page recently opened and devoted to systematic/rare minerals.

www.purple-sky-minerals.com

Many thanks for your interest.
