Copper coated by Chrysocolla
Bou Nahas Mine, Oumjtane, Anif Cercle, Tingir Province
Draa-Tafilalet Region, Morocco
9.4 x 6.7 x 1 CM (cabinet)
price: $150


Native Copper crystals in a flat, lace-like branching form that are covered with green Chrysocolla. In fine condition as seen, from a locality that has begun to produce some very attractive Copper secondary minerals and an occasional nice Copper like this. The Chrysocolla is a fairly thick outer coating but it is still possible to see the shapes of the underlying copper crystals, including some spinel twin forms. Choice.
