cuprite

Steve thank you for warning .I will send you a picture of sample and i hope you can help me.We found sample in pile of rocks that has been dumped at the entrance to a quarry of hwy 21 south pass Potosi.big rocks had pyrite, galena, and quartz. matrix that i have has a little bit of galena in the lower section and has a cluster of crystals that you can see through, a deep crimson shade, in the top section. the crimson crystals are covered with an orangy-yellow substance that you can scrape off. as a new rockhound, im very excited about this discovery and i might be wrong about identifying it as cuprite. Thank you my good man :)
