A very attractive “locality” specimen, and a surprise discovery from early 2011. These are the first Copper “sheets” that I have seen from Corocoro, and according to the locals, there were very few found. Most people are familiar with the Copper pseudomorphs after Aragonite from this locality, but to find non-pseudomorphic, native Copper is rather rare in my experience. This aesthetic, branching, "sheet" of Copper is a great display specimen from this historic locality. On the micro level the piece shows very unusual "wormholes" that gives the piece an amazingly organic appearance. It truly resembles some kind of plant life, i.e., a group of leaves or even a group of fire coral! Very unusual, and certainly out of the ordinary for Copper in general. Good Bolivian Coppers are not common on the market, and I was told that the locality was recently purchased by a Korean mining company, so collecting and obtaining specimens will become very difficult in the future.
