Copper, Quartz, Epidote
Phoenix Mine, Phoenix, Keweenaw Co., Michigan, USA
Small Cabinet, 8.6 x 4.3 x 3.0 cm
This old specimen features thick, robust crystals to FOUR CENTIMETERS In SIZE, perched as if arching up and away from a quartz matrix that is colored green in spots by epidote (or prehnite?). In that subtle way of crystallized coppers, it is pretty darned dramatic - BETTER In PERSON. 8.6 x 4.3 x 3 cm
