Item Description

Clusters of lustrous, black bubby heterogenite botryoids, a rare Co-oxide, compose all sides this solid sculptural triangular small cabinet. Turquoise-blue and green chrysocolla richly peppered about on all sides are a fine contrast and typical accessory. Complete all-around and in great shape, with only minimal, mostly out-of-sight bruising. This famous and abandoned copper mine, intermittently worked by locals for specimens, has easily produced the finest examples of the species. Valued at $400 by the former dealer.
