Mimetite With Native Copper

ID: CC5206

A neat miniature specimen of bi-coloured Mimetite with crystal sprigs of Native Copper, from the Tsumeb Mine, Namibia. Crystals of well developed Mimetite measuring to 7mm, display light orange colour on the prism areas, terminated by a zone of yellow. Crystallized Native Copper has grown against and partly enveloped by one of the Mimetite crystals. Several further sprigs of Native Copper are on the druse of colourless-white Calcite.
