Copper (Spinel-Twinned)
Chino Mine, nr. Santa Rita, Grant County, New Mexico, USA
Small Cabinet, 6.3 x 1.4 x 1.3 cm
Twisting, elegant, and rather large example with heavy secondary crystallization covering the central spinel twin! I priced these based o nthe quality of the central twin in part and its hard to say if the secondary crystallization here is a bonus or a hindrance. Certainly, the piece is unusual in the lot.
