ID: CC8288
A matrix of heavily iron-stained gossan, pervaded with acicular Quartz crystals and Cuprite, the latter taking the form of both massive clusters and euhedral crystals.  From the Tsumeb mine in Namibia, the Cuprite crystals are developed to 6 mm across, are an exquisite wine-red with very good transparency tending to gemmy and have a bright metallic lustre.  A terrific example of well crystallised Cuprite from Tsumeb with good-size crystals!
