Copper in Calcite

Onganja Mine, Windhoek District, Khomas Region, Namibia
minID: 9PD-EUU
49mm x 38mm x 35mm
An exceptional (and very unusual) Copper in Calcite from the great Onganja Mine. A large sharp transparent Calcite 3.8 CM across sits on and is included by Copper. The matrix is partly Copper, Malachite and Chalcotrichite. The Calcite is unlike most from Onganja as it is a simple modified rhomb without the complex habits or twinning that is typical from here. This displays well from most any angle, in very good condition with only very minor rub spots. The Onganja mine was once a prolific source of fine Coppers, Cuprites etc but the Calcites were always especially rare and sought after. The mine has been closed and flooded for years. This specimen is quite striking in person and a significant Copper.
