A lustrous glittering display of maroon red Cuprite with flashes of red, forming a druse over a dense Cuprite matrix from the Tsumeb Mine, Namibia. Crystals of Cuprite are cubooctahedral to dodecahedral in form measuring to 3mm, with faintly striated faces. The crystals of Cuprite are to some extent overgrown by pearly lustered areas of contrasting white Dolomite crystals, with here and there inclusions of green Malachite. A fine combination specimen from the Tsumeb.
