Hi Heimo, nice shattuckite!
Specimen DSCF4573.JPG (smoky quartz) -> https://www.mineral-forum.com/message-board/download.php?id=63393 does not look like that from Brandberg, but rather from Neu Schwaben (Karibib).

Thanks Pierre. I think you might be right regarding the the Smoky and would appreciate if one of the moderators could rectify the locality. Regards.

Wonderful Tsumeb specimen Heimo! I especially like the azurite (DSCF4881) and the Erongo fluorite (DSCF4601).

Your smithsonite (DSCF4654), caught me off guard though. I am not an expert on Tsumeb minerals by any stretch of the imagination, but to me it resembles smithsonites that are more typical of the Berg Aukas Mine than the Tsumeb Mine. Maybe Debbie Woolf can confirm this…

Thank you Jamison.

With regard to the Smithsonite - it was obtained in a container clearly marked Tsumeb specimens. It also baffled me at first, but I found a very similar picture of a specimen in the Tsumeb book by Georg Gebhard, which to a certain degree convinced me, but I'll be the first to admit if I have made a mistake.
