Aragonite, Calcite, & Dolomite With Cuprite

ID: CC1514

Prismatic modified scalenohedra of transparent lustrous Calcite (to 8mm) and greenish pseudohexagonal Aragonite crystals (to 3mm) grow on a glistening bed of milk white micro crystals of Dolomite. Accompanying these minerals, to one side of the specimen, is an area of red Cuprite crystals replacing Native Copper. A very 'busy', yet pretty miniature specimen.
