A small polished slab from Tsumeb with native Copper in matrix in association with Cuprite. The pictures are a little misleading in that in person, the Copper is much more visible, with a bright metallic luster, and the purple colored Cuprite is hardly noticeable. One of the problems with getting a good picture of the specimen is the Copper is best seen with the light at a certain angle, but this also causes a lot of reflected light on the polished surface.
Condition: Fairly Good
Flaws: There are two areas which are recessed in relation to the polished surface and are not polished.
