Description

Old, floater rosette of copper pseudomorph after sharp tabular azurite from the Copper Rose Mine (New Mexico). On the contrary of “typical” material from this locality, where the specimens have been aggressively treated, I keep it original (uncleaned) to preserve the nice old patina. Good example of a Classic Locality.
