JU211 Copper
Chimney Rock Quarry, Bridgewater Township, Somerset Co., New Jersey, United States
10.5x 5.5x 4.7 cm

A rare specimen of arborescent copper from the Chimney Rock quarry; the quarry is situated on the site of an older copper mine. The arrangement of this piece is particularly nice, with the copper planted nicely on a white matrix. The few others I have seen from this area tend to be rather crude masses of copper, with no particular orientation and little appreciable form.
