A wonderfully three-dimensional and showy display quality specimen of Native Copper from the 2019 discovery. The piece has an excellent mixture of large, defined dodecahedral and octahedral crystals which show elegant skeletal or "hoppered" negative faces with a narrow elongated "Spinel"-twin on the lower portion of the specimen. The piece resembles a flower in bloom as the "petals" of the Copper are slowly opening from the center. No damage anywhere, and this is a complete "floater", as the piece is 100% crystallized on all sides. A very attractive example of these remarkable display quality Coppers. The Rocklands Mine (also known as the Rocklands Group Copper Project) is a large copper deposit in northwestern Queensland, Australia and wasn't known primarily for producing much in the way of specimens. We started to see some arborescent / dendritic specimens of Copper trickling out in 2017, but in 2019 there was a major discovery of significant and important CRYSTALLIZED Copper specimens! At the Tucson Show in 2020, we were fortunate have a good friend who works at the mine, and gave us first choice to hand select from a parcel that he brought especially for us.
