ID: CC5004
A high quality crystallised small miniature Cuprite from the Tsumeb mine in Namibia with equant crystals to around 5 mm.  Ex-matrix, the crystals are densely intergrown, displaying complex cuboctahedral habits of a lustrous deep maroon while appearing as a dark grey-black metallic group from a typical viewing distance.  Examined close to, by eye or a x5 loupe, flecks of internal claret red are seen in some crystals, towards their edges.  This is a top-notch miniature Cuprite with superb crystal form.
