ID: CC15547
A very finely crystallised small miniature of matrix-free Native Copper from the Tsumeb mine in Namibia. Mounted on a small square acrylic base, the Copper forms an open branching network of interconnected equant crystals and long arborescent branches with an exquisite geometry of smaller branches, all at 90 degrees to the main stems. This most showy Native Copper is from the personal collection of a famous modern collector of Tsumeb minerals.
