A rich Gossan matrix has two major cavities beautifully scattered and clustered with lustrous crystals of Cuprite from the Nizhnii Tagil area in the Mid-Urals, Russia. Crystals of Cuprite dominated by the octahedron measuring to 4mm, with a gemmy brilliant ruby red colour, here and there are dotted micro-sphrulites of light green Malachite. An enjoyable specimen of Cuprite crystals from Russia.
