Mineral Specimen #2580    Dendritic Wire Copper on Etched Calcite

Tsumeb, Namibia

Thin wires of Copper which are covered with micro, sharply pointed, elongated, spinel twin crystals. The Copper is attached to a small pocket within a mass of Calcite. The Calcite has a pastel yellow color with a high luster and is highly etched with a few scattered small rhombic crystals. The Calcite fluoresces peach/orange under SW and pale yellow under LW. It is a bit hard to ascertain the condition of the specimen since the etched surfaces would disguise any breaks. It is however, quite an attractive specimen.
