SOLD Cuprite on Dickite
Milpillas Mine, Cuitaca, Municipio de Santa Cruz
Sonora, Mexico
7.1 x 2.9 x 2.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $0
Dec 2018

A shard of breccia bedrock is thickly covered with white Dickite that holds clusters of sharp bright red Cuprite crystals. The Milpillas mine is world famed for its great Azurites but several other Copper species are also first rate at this mine. The Cuprite on this piece is epitaxially oriented and has clean dark red color with bright luster. The individual crystals are sharp and damage free, all are transparent and could be faceted. Well above average quality for the find, the crystals are3 complete, well formed sharp and have classic form, unlike the flattened and distorted Cuprites that are more typical from here. Not just a locality piece, this is a choice displayable specimen that is impressive in person.
