Copper, Botallack, St Just, Cornwall, England

A dendritic growth of copper crystals. Also known as native copper, the specimen is pure copper, uncombined with any other elements. Some of the best dendritic (branching) specimens came from the Gwennap mines. This specimen was drawn for Specimens of British Minerals, Selected from the Cabinet of Philip Rashleigh (1797, Volume 1, Plate 17, Figure 2) which states Is native copper shot in long four-sided wire-like figures. From Botallack Adit, in St Just parish. Copper lodes are widespread in Cornwall and, as a result, copper was one of the most significant metals mined in Cornwall. Rashleigh Collection
