This is an interesting one. Beautiful, lustrous, red cuprite crystals have formed and totally covered native copper crystals. You can see sharp native copper crystals sticking out around the base and right out of the top of one of the spires of cuprite crystals. See it on the top of the right branch? Copper can be seen embedded in the calcite, as well. The calcite crystals are very sharp scalenohedra. Excellent!
