Item Description

A sculptural, 360-degree-around copper specimen with sharp crystals and a unique shimmering patina. All crystals are sharp and the piece is very intricate in person. The piece is a floater, with no attachments to mar its symmetry all around. This is a prized piece from a find of about a decade ago, circa 2010 or so, that produced amazing crystallized coppers and cuprites from this remote locality. Most were dull, but this has the best sparkly patina! You can see, it came out of an old collection in Tucson few years ago, but had been sold long before at $1400, and should be valued higher today as these have long since dried up.
