Native copper from Tsumeb is quite rare! Although hard to show on video, virtually the entire piece is composed of arborescent crystallization, of which many of the branches terminate in subhedral copper crystals. It is in impressive copper specimen from the well-known Namibian mineral collection of Shields and Frances Flynn, who self-published the book, Minerals of Namibia - From the Collection of Shields and Frances Flynn in 2018.
