Item Description

An old-time, unusual, uncommon and showy copper specimen from Bisbee and the Dennis Mullane Bisbee Collection. Seldom do you see solid, floater, crystallized Bisbee copper pieces with bubbly, botryoidal to hackly, copper crystals with such a pretty coppery patina. Some of the redder patina is cuprite-coated. Classic and rare material from this noted locale. This could be from the 1950s to 1970s, or much older.
