Item Description

A SUPERB example of Bisbee copper, which actually is not as common as you would think from one of the worlds largest copper mines?.this is an arborescent vertical cluster with incredibly sharp crystals, combined into a fanspray atop. They are lustrous, bright, and without damage. The piece is complete all around. For a Bisbee copper, this is one of the more eminently displayable, sexy pieces and we value it highly (perhaps $900-1000ish). If it were from Michigan, where such is more common, paradoxically there would be a higher price attached because more folks collect Michigan coppers. But for Arizona, its actually far more significant.
