Bright, pretty specimen of copper crystals in a vug with sparkling quartz crystals. Minor amounts of crystalline epidote in association. It’s hard to say whether the main copper on the piece is a single complex crystal or in fact intergrown crystals – I suspect it might be the latter but it’s not easy to discern. The length of the main copper is 17mm tip to tip. The smaller group is gorgeous with a little magnification. Both the main one and the smaller group are sharp and well defined. This specimen comes with an additional mineral as well – you can see there are microscopic blue balls on the copper – they are a chrysocolla-type hue, but you’ll have to do analysis to confirm their identity. From the collection of Canadian collector Gil Benoit. The contrast makes this piece. Really nice matrix crystallized copper.
