An elegant cluster of two faithfully replaced cuprite crystals, now made of solid copper but showing the original octohedral shape of cuprite, from amazing and totally unprecedented finds here of the early 2000s. I bought this from the Russian directly at the time and sold to the previous owner, now recently reacquired. It is a 360-degree piece with exceptional shape and color. It looks good from any angle, upside down or otherwise. It is a floater. Crystals to 1.4 cm.
