Only a small amount of crysalline Native Copper is present on this hand specimen. It shows no definite damage and actually possesses a few discernable crystal faces. The Copper has the classic coppery-red coloration and metallic luster and interacts with a few small calcite crystals that it partially enveloped. It rests upon a thick slab of basalt that is also partly covered with a rust-colored druse of tiny ferroandolomite crystals.
