Wow! Richest specimen of native copper that I have seen from Tsumeb! One side of the piece is sawn to reveal the cross-sectional texture of the mineralogy. The other side is rough, exhibiting copper crystals surrounded by calcite cleavages. soem of the calcite is tinted red by cuprite or hematite. As well, some of the copper crystals are encrusted with cuprite. Extremely rich and excellent specimen! R
