Y1615 Copper ps Cuprite
Poteryaevskoe Mine, Altaiskiy Kray, Western Siberian Region, Russia
3.1x 2.6x 2.4 cm
$375

A cluster of copper psudomorphs after cuprite octahedrons. Along with the massive amounts of cuprite that came from the area, there was a relatively small find of these very interesting pseudomorphs made in 2011. 

Unlike the cuprites which flooded the market, the prices on these things have been consistently high-- these pseudomorphs were only found towards the end of work in the cuprite-bearing zone and in relatively small quantities. 

This one is priced quite reasonably, I think.
