ID: CC10346
A coral-like formation of Native Copper, largely covered by micro-crystallised druses of light peppermint to leafy mid-green Malachite.  This cabinet specimen is from Rudabánya in Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén County, Hungary, a silver and copper mining district dating back to the medieval period.  The mineralised zone extended over a distance of about 10 km; an area now strewn with abandoned, water-filled open pits and extensive mine dumps.  Very limited areas of dark maroon-red Cuprite can be seen and once located, is massive rather than crystalline.  An old-time specimen of Malachite coating Native Copper from Hungary.
