Copper (Spinel-Twinned)
Chino Mine, nr. Santa Rita, Grant County, New Mexico, USA
Small Cabinet, 7.8 x 2.0 x 1.7 cm
A visually stunning, curved specimen showing dramatic secondary crystallization that is the most complexly symmetric of the lot, when such has occured. the lateral orientation of the crystals on the secondary growth is really enhancing of the sharp central twinning, and the centrla twin has extra-thick flanges as a result that really draw the eye inward to the point. One of my favorites of the lot!
