Cuprite: Cu2O

It is often associated with Native Copper, Malachite, Azurite, Limonite and Chalocite.

Of all the copper ores except for native copper, Cuprite gives the greatest yield of copper per molecule since there is only one oxygen atom to every two copper atoms. As a mineral specimen, Cuprite shows fine examples of well-developed cubic crystal forms. Cuprite’s dark crystals show internal reflections of the true deep red inside the almost black crystal. Other varieties, such as chalcotrichite, show tufts of needle-like crystals that have a beautiful red color and a special sparkle that make them popular display cabinet specimens.

Named in 1845 by Wilhelm Karl von Haidinger from the Latin “cuprum,” in allusion to its composition.
