Cuprite crystals of up to 7 mm with a silvery-grey patina coat much of a re-cemented milky Quartz breccia vein from the famous Wheal Gorland in the village of St. Day, in Gwennap, Cornwall, England.  The Cuprite crystals are well developed and fairly complex and in places do give a hint of their underlying red colour.
