This is a fine cluster of cuprite crystals, the largest of which is .8" across. This piece came from the 2014 find at the now-closed Poteryaevskoe copper mine in Western Siberia. The crystals are a mirror-bright, metallic, dark silver with a slight hint of red, and feature an outstandingly brilliant luster. The crystals are formed as very sharp octahedrons, with razor sharp edges and points. This is nearly a floater piece, with only a few minor contact points. This is a top notch and very desirable specimen from this world class locality.
