Sharp copper crystals standing up over dark basalt at the base. The largest crystal in the group is particularly sharp. This piece was collected by Terry Collett in 2021. An aesthetic specimen, sits perfectly for display as photographed.
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.
