A particularly fine dendritic crystal specimen of Native Copper from the Carn Brea Mine, which developed a number of lodes in one of Cornwall's most intensively mined areas. The specimen displays a classic branching habit of metallic light coppery sharp red crystals, with areas of grey green Chlorite and whitish Quartz. A fine specimen from the mine.
