A branching group of native copper crystals – many well-defined faces are visible upon careful inspection. A small amount of basalt is attached at the base of the specimen. A great display specimen of Nova Scotia copper!
About These Copper Specimens
Copper has been known at Cap D’Or for at least two thousand years. Collection-quality specimens have been recovered sporadically from the shoreline basalt cliffs and outcrops, usually in isolated finds of single or small numbers of pieces. The period 2011-2013 was more productive, and since then finds have been few and far between.
