Description

    SONORA SUNSET
    Milpillas Mine
    Sonora
    Mexico
    5.51 x 3.62 x 1.9 inches (14 x 9.2 x 4.85 cm)


    This polished, hand-sized "chunk" of Sonora Sunset is quite sizable at almost 6 inches (15.24 cm) at its maximum dimension, and the polished surface is primarily a crimson Cuprite - from the Latin cuprum meaning Copper. The rock will stand without the aid of a base, as the somewhat triangular stone has a relatively flat bottom. Smooth to the touch, the surface is relaxing from both a tactile standpoint and a visual perspective. From a famous mine in Mexico, this piece of lapidary art is one attractive decoration.
