Cuprite Included In Cerussite

ID: CC3064

A classic combination of Cuprite included in Cerussite from the Tsumeb Mine, Namibia. Lustrous gemmy crystals of Cerussite measuring to 4mm are seen to have a red colour due to minute acicular crystal of Cuprite inclusions. The crystals are accented by the white dolomite matrix. On the reverse of the specimen can be seen colourless gemmy Cerussite crystals associated with light green Duftite on a white Dolomite matrix.
