Copper (Spinel-Twinned)
Miniature, 4.8 x 2.7 x 1.9 cm
Champion Mine, Painesdale, Houghton Co., Michigan, USA

This "v" shaped cluster of two major spinel twins, smothered in smaller and filigreed offshoot twins, exhibits dendritic growth with a rich brownish-red color and good luster. The crystals have a patina colored a rich brownish-red (untouched by acidizing). The largest crystal is a spinel twin measuring 5.0 cm in length. Classic form and style!
