DescriptionDeGrussa End Cut
DeGrussa Copper Mine
Doongunna Station, Peak Hill Goldfield, Meekatharra Shire
Western Australia, Australia
This polished end cut is from the famed DeGrussa Mine in Western Australia. An assortment of different Copper minerals came together over time to form this stunning combination of colors. The duality of the polished display face against the rough reverse is sublime. Once just Native Copper, it is now: Cuprite, Malachite, Chrysocolla and Quartz with patches of Native Copper still present. There are lovely sections of rich fibrous green Malachite offset against cavities of druzy Quartz in pits surrounded by areas of sea foam blue Chrysocolla finished off with flowing bands of brown Native Copper. This rare material is in an oddity of the highest decorative value and truly something to behold.
