Description
Cuprite is an oxide mineral composed of copper oxide Cu2O, and is a minor ore of copper. It is a secondary mineral which forms in the oxidized zone of copper sulfide deposits. It frequently occurs in association with native copper, azurite, chrysocolla, malachite and a variety of iron oxideminerals. Cuprite was first described in 1845 and the name derives from the Latin cuprum for its copper content. Cuprite is found in the Ural Mountains, Altai Mountains, Sardinia, France, Arizona, Chile, Bolivia, and Namibia.
