Tsumeb Mine, Tsumeb Namibia, Chalcocite
5 Chalcocite Tsumeb Mine, Tsumeb Namibia
6.4 X 4 X 3cm 
Well crystalized chalcocites from Tsumeb are highly prized by both the Tsumeb, copper and sulfide collectors. This one has crystals to .3cm and is densely covered. Between the chalcocites are needle quarts, many included with what I assume to be hematite (label says lepidicrocite but this was a common visual id error). From the Steven Phillips collection (with label). Very fine.
