A very sharp complete "floater" cuprite with an uncommon form. This Cuprite is coated with and altering to Malachite from the classic Chessy-les-Mines. Most of these are octahedrons but this is a rhombic-dodecahedron, much like a Garnet shape. No damage, all faces are complete and present. Exam under the microscope shows that there is still considerable cuprite present here this is not a complete pseudo. Choice
