ID: CC32545
Chalcocite is not uncommon from the Tsumeb mine in Namibia but this large thumbnail is exceptional for the quality and quantity of its crystals.  A matrix-less specimen composed entirely of well crystallised Chalcocite forms gunmetal to bright metallic silver prisms up to 7 mm long.  The crystals are intergrown at random orientations, so forming an open stick-framework full of voids.  A very rich and well crystallised Chalcocite from the Tsumeb mine in the Oshikoto Region of Namibia.
