Description

This is a very aestic specimen of well crystallized, botryoidal aggregates of conichalcite, accompanied by cuprite. Both species are perched on white rhombohedral calcite. Seldom, that I saw such fine conichalcite crystals and the matrix is typical for Tsumeb. The crystals are with megnification well defined, razor sharp and highly lustrous with a glassy green colour. This is a super opportunity to get hold of a fine Tsumeb classic.
