Item #10277
$ 250
Keweenaw Peninsula, Michigan, USA

This fine old specimen of arborescent copper from Michigan comes with a Carl Bentley label. Hand written on the back it says "Natural Arborescent Copper ex-Schlicter Coll." That would be my old friend Ernie Schlicter who passed away some years ago. Ernie new minerals, including coppers, and this piece is especially aesthetic for its size. Five main branches host a myriad of small crystals. The copper is somewhat flattened at the bottom where it grew in a tight space but much more three-dimensinal on the ends of the branches. A lovely piece measuring 4.7 x 3.5 x 0.4 cm.
