Ex. Charlie Key
A crust of lustrous white dolomite is partially stained green by malachite. Situated on right side of the specimen is a compound cluster of gemmy and lustrous, bright red cuprite crystals. The rosette measures 2 cm across. Visually, this specimen is very pleasing to the eye and unusually attractive for a Tsumeb cuprite in particular. MUCH BETTER In PERSON!!
