Description

This is a stunning, seemingly carved, Cuprite thumber with sharp faces and brilliant luster. When backlit strongly, a gemmy red color permeates the outside few millimeters of the piece. This style (the thin red zone, and the bevelled edges) was rare from the mine´s 2009-2010 production, amidst many more commonly found with no hint of red and sharper corners to the octohedra. The piece is complete all around, just the bottom has the usual contact. Very minor edge wear is exceeding hard to see and actually not worth to report. This locality has produced what are arguably the world´s best Cuprite crystals in modern times. The combination here of luster, sharpness, and beauty of the crystals is together more desirable to my eye than all but a very few Cuprites known from past major locales.
