Copper With Cuprite
Small Cabinet, 7.2 x 3.8 x 2.5 cm
Poteryaevskoe Mine, Rubtsovsk, Altai, Western-Siberian Region, Russia

This specimen has perhaps the most robust, fat crystals of the lot, with brilliant and metallic color, sharp elongated forms of several crystallographic habits, and a minor association with the cuprite which I think this find will become known for. It is MUCH more intricate and 3-dimensional in person, and is, I think, a major Russian copper specimen which should in the past have commanded twice the price.
