Copper (Cubic)
Miniature, 3.3 x 2.1 x 0.9 cm
White Pine Mine, Ontanagon County, Michigan, USA
Ex. Roland and Kathy Sherman
INCREDIBLE cubic coppers - super rare habit, in elegant perch on a thumbnail specimen. Maybe my favorite of the large copper suite (over 20 pieces) in the Sherman collection. Never seen quite the like for sharpness and stereotypical form. This is a PERFECT large thumbnail. A famous cubic copper sold for $20,000 recently, setting a new price precedent for a copper thumbnail - but it is of the same rare habit as this one, is interesting. This specimen is an AMFS showcase competition winner. From the Roland and Kathy Sherman thumbnail collection: they are competitive thumbnail exhibitors from Southern California, specializing in copper species. Joe Budd Photos
