Cuprite Var Chalcotrichite Included In Cerussite

ID: CC1455

Rich blood red Chalcotrichite included Cerussite from the classic location of the Tsumeb Mine, Namibia. The lustrous part formed Cerussite crystals measure to 1cm tall, with associated masses measuring to 1cm. The Cerussite is heavily included by dense hair-like fibrous crystals of red Cuprite. The Cerussite has grown on a micro-crystalline white Dolomite, with bright green crystal areas of Duftite. A fine specimen of the type from the mine.
