This is an elegant copper specimen of interconnected crystals showing several different habits. The more closely you look, the more mesmerizing are the patterns and the sharp crystallization habits. At the center of view is an elegant, curving 2-cm-tall spinel twinned copper. We obtained this a long time ago in the collection of Tucson based southwest specialist, Harold Urish. It then sold to Jim Houran for his American Beauties thumbnail suite, which later sold intact to Kyle Kevorkian's collection.
