Chalcocite Ps. Tennantite and Quartz
Small Cabinet, 5.4 x 3.2 x 3.0 cm
Tsumeb Mine, Tsumeb, Otjikoto Region, Namibia

A most unusual, and attractive, pseudomorph. The main black crystals appear to be possibly Chalcocite after Tennantite, modified and elongated up to 2.2 cm long. These pseudos rest on a jackstraw matrix of pink (yes, pink) Quartz crystals up to 1 cm long. The color combination is unusual, and quite aesthetic. A fine specimen.
