Item Description

A highly stylized, very aesthetic sculptural copper with cuprite specimen from the famous Ray Mine. This striking two-sided piece consists of amazing, elongated, arborescent spinel-twins with some sharp, tetrahexahedral copper microcrystals; all overcoated with sparkly, cuprite microcystals. This excellent piece comes from a recently uncovered stash from the well-known copper mine, as the specimens were collected in 1959! This one has a distinct, insect-like look to it!
