- Calcite with Cuprite
- Tsumeb Mine, Otjikoto Region, Namibia
- Small Cabinet, 6.7 x 6.4 x 3.6 cm
- Ex. Shields and Frances Flynn
Unusual for Tsumeb, this is a snow white, frosted and translucent calcite crystal, measuring 4.5 cm in length. You can see Tsumeb matrix underneath and on the surface it exhibits tiny balls of cuprite for accent. Really interesting and unusual! Good calcite beyond the rhombohedral style is simply not common from Tsumeb. Was, rather...it was a long time ago!
