A fairly sharp chalcocite thumbnail from the world-famous and now extinct Tsumeb Mine. As is typical for the species, the specimen has a dull, pitted, and sooty surface. Small smithsonite (?) crystals also present, mostly on the back face. Outside of the usual edge and back issues, no damage is seen.
