Here is a sharp cluster featuring multiple cuprite crystals, the largest of which is just over 1.3" This piece came from the now-closed Poteryaevskoe copper mine in Western Siberia. The crystals are a mirror-bright, metallic, dark silver with a hint of red, with outstandingly brilliant luster. The crystals are formed as very sharp octahedrons, with razor sharp edges and points. This is a floater piece, and is a top notch and very desirable specimen from this world class locality that closed in 2015.
