Item Description

A classic, very sharp, pointed, spinel-twinned, copper crystal from recent finds at the famous Chino Mine of New Mexico. One side of the spearpoint has a very nifty groove, while the other side is sharply crystallized. The pretty copper patina is the result of mild cleaning. Excellent, highly representative material for the size and noted locale.
