ID: CC17384
A wonderful specimen of Cuprite crystals from the Mashamba West mine in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Sharp intergrown Cuprite crystals measure to 1.5 cm, forming rich dark maroon-red ribbons finely contrasted on and against duck egg-blue Chrysocolla. Several bright emerald green sprays of Malachite nestle against the Cuprite across the specimen making for a spectacular display. The sides of the specimen must have been sawn, betrayed by their regularity. These are not smooth however, with no trace of saw blade marks probably as a result of the rough texture of the matrix. This is a splendid large cabinet specimen rich with magnificent Cuprite crystals.
