A highly aesthetic thumbnail cluster of cuboctahedral Cuprite crystals, measuring to 1.2 cm of deep maroon red with a semi-metallic lustre. This tiny yet beautiful example of stacked Cuprite crystals from the Tsumeb mine in Namibia is lightly dusted in a micro-crystalline mid-leaf green mineral, probably Conichalcite.
