Copper after Cuprite
Nearly 18 cm, again a piece worthy of a museum display. Don, I can't find words for your spectacular specimens, this thread keeps taking my breath away!
But I think it's not only copper after cuprite but also some "fresh" cuprite crystals attached?

Please more stuff from the DLMM (Don Lum Mineral Museum)!!! :-)

Regards
Tobi


Could I apply for membership of the DLMM's friend association ?



Yes, Tobi, you can be a charter member.

Thanks.

Regards,

Don



Yes, Dany, I will make you a charter member. Have a nice weekend and please keep posting.

Regards,

Don
