MINERAL GEM WORLD
This is a piece of cooper that has ben heated and then splashed on a dish to cool leaving amazing shapes.When the shapes are cooled, a green or turquoise-colored chemical patina is applied using a copper Carbonate, then highlights are buff polished to expose the solid copper raised areas. The finished sculptures are finally sprayed with a clear acrylic finish to prevent the copper from tarnishing. Interesting collectors item.

Copper, as native copper, is one of the few metals to naturally occur as an un-compounded mineral. Copper was known to some of the oldest civilizations on record, and has a history of use that is at least 10,000 years old. Some estimates of copper's discovery place this event around 9000 BC in the Middle East .A copper pendant was found in what is now northern Iraq that dates to 8700 BC. Color
I am 110% satisfied. Beautiful, deep blue color, very translucent & crystalline specimen. Reasonably priced. Highly recommend to other buyers.
