The name Cuprite is derived from the Latin word cuprum, meaning copper because of its high copper content. This crystal was first described in 1845 but Cuprite crystals have been found on ancient Roman and Celtic copper and bronze objects.

A beautiful stone combining Cuprite and Chrysocolla comes from the Sonora Valley in Northern Mexico and is referred to as Sonoran Sunset or Sonora Sunrise stone.
