This is a superb old Bisbee classic from the Cole mine, featuring small, bright, gemmy clear calcite crystals on copper matrix, with some copper-included calcite crystals and minor red cuprite. Copper-included calcite is not common from Bisbee and this is a very aesthetic cabinet-size example from the noted collection of author and geologist Tom Rosemeyer. Mark Cross photo. Classic!
