The Copper Rose mine at San Lorenzo, New Mexico, USA is considered an American classic, mainly because of its Native Copper rose pseudomorphs after Azurite.  This small mine worked a metamorphosed limestone and these pseudomorphs were highly sought after in the late 1800’s.  This specimen comprises of matt, blush-pink micro-granular Native Copper replacing a complete rosette of former Azurite crystals, with a cream-coloured clay remaining between the narrow blades.
