The crystals on this specimen of cuprite are razor sharp, geometric, octahedral double pyramids. They present themselves with a metallic gray-silver color, with some hoppering on the faces. The luster is earthy. This is an excellent specimen from what many consider the world's best locality (closed in 2016), a dramatic and unique specimen of a mineral that is rarely found in good crystals.
