Description

Arborescent growth of flattened native copper, developed in a crack of a rhyolite rock, elegantly rising off the matrix. This remarkable matrix specimen is apart of a limited amount of pieces recovered by a local collector in the period May 1990 – January 1992. We kept it as natural as possible avoiding aggressive cleaning treatments that may increase the brightness, yes, but completely eliminate the essence of the piece. It is free of damage!.
