Description

Here we see a striking Tsumeb combination piece of acicular orange-red Cuprite variety Chalcotrichite as a "dense fur", covering a huge vug, lined with creamy Dolomite rhombs. Chalcotrichite is RARE at Tsumeb and I have never seen a robust variety of Chalcotrichite like this before - usually they are isolated needles! Certainly a rare varietal but this specific piece is outstanding in its quality. Definitely a weird, unusual but showy Tsumeb combination piece and actually I didn´t see see good ones like this before. This is a killer piece all the way and exceeding hard to come by. From the collection of Tsumeb miners foreman Peter Döring and consequently mined in the 1960s or 1070s. This fine specimen comes with a high quality acrylic base.
