The highlights of this specimen are the two parallel growth, metallic and dark red, octahedrons of cuprite, each measuring 2.5 cm in length. Not only are the two crystals the same size, they are both doubly terminated and show off many points spraying in all directions, for a very 3-dimensional effect. A wonderful miniature, better in person!
