Though almost all of the 20 or so Cuprite crystals on this specimen show damage in one form or another, it still has a lot of material on it. The crystals have octahedral form and the deep red color and adamantine luster that is often associated with this mineral. The largest of the crystals is less than 50% complete, but projections of its form cause me to estimate that its original dimensions each measured approximately 0.5" (1.3 cm). The few complete crystals are limited to the smallest ones, measuring less than 0.2" (5 mm) in any dimension. They rest on what appears to be a rough gray limestone host rock.
