Ex. Shields and Frances Flynn

Excellent and complex, this 1.3 cm Cuprite crystal is held perfectly between the tips of two solid Copper fingers. The luster is excellent and the light transmission quite good. The Cuprite crystal simply glows when backlit. The pics really tell you all you need to know about how good this toenail really is. UNUSUAL for the locality! Also, native copper is itself unusual here.
