Copper crystals on Mimetite
Small Cabinet, 7.5 x 6.4 x 4.7 cm
Tsumeb Mine, Tsumeb, Namibia
An unusual specimen, of an association I have simply not seen before - tiny specks of copper are crystallized atop cauliflower-like growths of rich yellow mimetite. A large, hefty specimen that is bigger in person than it seems from the photos, for what that is worth. Unusual!
