Here is a sharp single cuprite crystal from classic find at the now-closed Poteryaevskoe copper mine in Western Siberia. The crystal is bright, metallic, dark silver with a subtle hint of red, with outstandingly brilliant luster. The crystal is a nearly complete octahedron, with razor sharp edges and points; there are some smaller crystals growing attached. The tips of the main crystal have super sharp terminations, which is characteristic of the cuprite from this mine. This is a floater piece, with no damage or contact points anywhere. It is a top notch and very desirable specimen from this world class locality.
