Two well formed inter grown crystals of Cuprite are coated and partly replaced by Malachite from the Onganja area, Seeis, Namibia. The crystals of Cuprite display major development of the octahedral faces, with dodecahedral faces and minor cubic faces. Crystallized green Malachite has formed on and to some extent replaced the Cuprite crystals. Excellent specimen from the area.
