Cuprite

ID: CC4795

An excellent specimen of inter grown octahedral Cuprite crystals measuring to 8mm, from Wheal Gorland, St. Day, Cornwall (it is recorded that viable Cuprite rich ore did not appear until a depth of 96 fathoms was reached in the lode). Crystals of Cuprite have a lustrous deep maroon red colour, associated with white Quartz. A great specimen of well defined Cuprite crystals from the mine.
