Cuprite
description: <p style="text-align: justify;">LOCALITY: Milpillas Mine, near Cananea, Sonora Province, Mexico <br /><br />This picture illustrates this fine Milpillas cuprite specimen when viewed under the light of an incandescent bulb. This illumination source is the strongest emitter of wavelengths at the infrared end of the visible spectrum. Hence, when the cuprite crystal is exposed to the globe, it appears redder than what it would even in sunlight.  The specimen was frontlit in this photo. </p> <p style="text-align: justify;"> </p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Photo by Matthew Webb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia </p>
