Item Description

A dramatic and sculptural large filagree of extremely flattened copper crystals from the Keweenaw. The exposed crystals have pretty, buttery, copper patina, with the rest of the crystals being tenorite coated. Flattened coppers of this form are unusual and rare from here. Old-time material from this historic locale, but no proof. Ex Bradford and Sal Avella Collections.
