Cuprite from Lavrion is like a holy grail for many Lavrion collectors and until this new find, it has been nearly impossible to find a piece to purchase. This is a rich example with dozens of crystals covered with green malachite. This material will soon be gone from the market like all other good old Lavrion finds.
