Description

A curvy specimen full of beautiful copper minerals. Most of it is superb, green cuprian adamite with a beautiful cluster of contrasting, almost electric blue azurite. There are also plenty of cute little altered crystals of cuprite, that are mostly covered with green malachite. Lastly, there are a few cute little groups of aragonite crystals present too. From a find that was made last year in what some people called the "new Kupferkluft".
