Item Description

A very elegant, folded, leaf-like, spinel-twinned copper crystal from the famous 1970s finds at the Ray Mine of Arizona. This classic form has a nifty "stem", a beautiful, coppery patina and looks good from all sides. Many of these were "cooked" to bring out the shine. Fortunately, this one was not. Ex Jaime Bird Collection.
