    Description

    Native Copper
    Chengmenshan Mine, Jiujiang Co.
    Jiujiang, Jiangxi
    China

    This truly monstrous specimen of Native Copper from China is huge and striking with an inherent drama that exudes from the crystalline example. A natural artistic form coupled with formation holes and even a variety of colorful hues combines to make this massive mineral something special and very atypical of the species. This big and bold offering displays a brilliance that is not often seen in any forms of Copper, and the enormous example comes with a custom acrylic base. This statuesque metallic piece is unusual in many ways, including the finish, which is indicative of typical acid wash treatment to enhance colors.
    Overall Measurements: 13.39 x 5.91 x 3.94 inches (34.00 x 15.00 x 10.00 cm), weighs 3,665 grams

    [Scale: 1 inch, with mark at 1 cm]
