Truly exceptional limb of dendritic, crystallized Copper, which is quite rare in native form from Tsumeb. This limb is anchored by a 1.3 cm bladed Copper crystal, and from there it develops into very detailed and lush smaller branches composed of dentritic and crystalline Copper growth. The detail of the growth is exquisite. Nestled on many of the branches are balls of Malachite, small crystals of Cerussite and Cuprite to add to the patina. Superb.
