Cuprite coated by Malachite
Onganja Mine, Windhoek District
Khomas Region, Namibia
4 X 3 CM (miniature)
price: $1450
Spring 2013

An important classic, the find of these fantastic Cuprites was made 45 years ago, there have been none since. These are now very rare on the market and this one is in fine condition. On the base and in one corner the malachite coating did not form and the bright red Cuprite is clearly seen. Some chipping is present on backside and underneath but the display side is clean and undamaged. Great color and textbook sharp form are what sets the best old Onjanga Cuprites apart.
