This oddly-shaped piece consists of a formation of heavily warped and intergrown Copper crystals. There is only a tiny amount of damage to the specimen, in the form of tiny spots of bright copper-red color and metallic luster on the green, dull surface. However, these spots may simply be points where the piece was attached to its place of origin, and represent separation points. The crystals that make up the specimen are so warped and intergrown that one cannot really define individual crystals, but faces and angles are present. There is a very small amount of white, formless calcite attached to the Copper, but no host or matrix rock.
