ID: CC17661
Beautiful crystallised Native Copper from the Dzhezkazgan mine, Dzhezkazgan Oblast’, Kazakhstan, forming delicate herringbone sheets to 5 x 0.8 cm.  The complex array of Copper crystals are attached to a greenish-grey shard of diorite-type rock. Most of the herringbone structure has a crossed-branching structure forming a solid sheet which appears almost to have been woven.  In one area the branches curl back forming a “Prince of Wales feather”-like structure.  The Copper is a rich reddish-bronze with an overall sooty-black oxidation surface, making a delightful specimen from Kazakhstan.
