Native Copper and Cuprite

ID: CC351
Lustrous Native Copper and Cuprite are intergrown with minor white Quartz to form a crystallised mass. The Copper has a bright patina, and is in varying stages of crystallisation, with the largest crystal measuring to 5mm. Cuprite forms octahedrons of varying size to nearly 4mm, and has a silvery lustre, and shows gemmy redness in places. Stands well for display.
