The color is red, ranging from brownish or blackish to pure crimson, depending on the formation and the presence of impurities. Cuprite forms in oxidized and Azurite. Fine Cuprite specimens have been collected in Africa in the Congo and Namibia, and in the USA, in Bisbee, Arizona. More common forms of Cuprite are widespread and are found in many copper-producing areas.
