Description

From September 1888 stems this very nice and in my opinion really rare specimen with crystallized native copper on more or less earthy ironstone/hematitic matrix (could be altered siderite or else). The label give Leona Mine as locality. In Huelva province there was a La Leona Mine in the area of Serón-Bacares. Mindat lists nothing from there so the spanish specialists may know more. Beautiful old label.
