Cuprite on Copper
Miniature, 5.2 x 3.2 x 1.5 cm
Tsumeb Mine, Tsumeb, Otjikoto Region, Namibia
Ex. James and Marjorie Ferguson

An exquisite specimen, with SHARP, METALLIC< fiery red cuprite crystals perched on sharp, elongated copper crystals. Copper of this quality is extremely uncommon for Tsumeb. Cuprite more so in any kind of good cubic form, let alone with such luster! The combo....seen only a few times, in small pockets. This is an exceptional competition-quality miniature. It is MUCH better in person, too.
