with the pale blue color and extremely elongate crystals I would suspect aurichalcite over rosasite...but there are several acicular blue alternatives for Tsumeb...stranskyite?

Charly, looks more like a piece of pegmatite with a granite xenolith and late epidote veining to me. Not quite sure I see purple exactly...looks like it might be fine-grained dispersed specularite. T ...
