Mineral Specimens For Sale From the Tsumeb Mine, Tsumeb, Otjikoto Region, Namibia, South West Africa

The Peter Bancroft book, Gem & Crystal Treasures is one of the most renowned writings on collectable mineral localities.  He notes the Tsumeb mine as follows:  "The greatest crystal producing mine on earth is located along a strip of low jagged hills bordering the Kaukau Veld... it is known as Tsumeb".  Since that publication numerous books and articles on this famous locality have been published.  Agreed by most to be the most important mineral producing locality on our planet, its mineral specimens are many, and many are the finest known.  Great examples of these fine crystals were brought out of the workings by native miners beginning in the late 1800's.  Now long closed, the fine examples of its great minerals remain among the most coveted of mineral specimens known.
