DescriptionDruzy Chrysocolla Sculpture
Bagdad Copper Mine
As far as lapidary material goes, Chrysocolla is some of the best found on Earth. This particular material was mined from the famous Bagdad Copper Mine in Arizona. The mine is no longer producing material, making this piece special as the stone is becoming harder and harder to find. Funnily, the colors represented in this piece are actually by-products of oxidizing Copper deposits. This sculpture has beautiful patches and veins of Chrysocolla running throughout its mottled, earthy brown matrix. On one side are pockets of clear druzy Quartz which sparkle blue due to the vibrant Chrysocolla coming through. The sculpture is accented with complementary patches of green Malachite along with bursts of black Iron. This piece has been finished off with a great polish and is in excellent condition.
