An exceptionally large specimen of native Copper with Quartz, Epidote and Datolite. The Copper and its formation is completely natural, and was cleaned with solvents and sealed in order to enjoy the natural beauty, color and luster. I know some prefer to leave copper untouched, and in the case of rarer Copper crystals, I couldn’t agree more. However, when it’s a Copper mass like this piece, I don’t mind the native Copper being able to display its metallic luster for a collector to enjoy aesthetically. With that being said, I love the size, luster and contrast of this piece – the Copper to really stands out! In excellent condition.
