ID: CC2753

Native Copper and Cuprite combine to form a fabulous three dimensional sculpture. The Native Copper has a reddish to goldish coppery colour, with superb patina and sharp crystallisation in a variety of forms, some crystals with striated crystal faces. The Cuprite crystal are scattered over the arborescent form sitting dominantly on the ends of the 'branches'. The Cuprites measure to 7mm with many sharply crystallised octahedrons, with metallic to bright silvery lustre, and are deep red under strong light with flashes of ruby red. A gorgeous and quite unique form, some say it looks like a standing person, others a poodle - we will let you decide!
