A choice, tightly clustered group of three or four intergrown gemmy claret-red Cuprite crystals on a bed of sub-mm pink-tinged Calcite crystals and light grey Dolomite matrix.  The largest crystal measures 0.8 cm across and all have a brilliant bright metallic lustre. The largest Cuprite crystal is a sharp octahedron and the smaller crystals display forms of the cuboctahedral.  A beautiful Tsumeb Cuprite on a clear acrylic base.
