Cuprite, Calcite, Willemite

Miniature, 4.2 x 2.9 x 2.6 cm
Lustrous, sharp, wine-red cuprite crystals in clusters or as discrete crystals are nicely scattered on the 3-dimensional sliver of gossan matrix. Beautifully complimenting the cuprites is a rich carpet of sparkly, pastel-green cuprian calcite microcrystals and a few yellow willemite crystals. Excellent combination material from the Tsumeb Mine and the Rob Smith Collection.
