Copper with Quartz, South Caradon Mine, St Cleer, Cornwall, England

Copper with crystalline quartz. Most Cornish copper specimens are dull, but native copper (pure copper, uncombined with any other elements) from Caradon is invariably bright, as can be seen in this specimen. Copper lodes are widespread in Cornwall and, as a result, copper was one of the most significant metals mined in Cornwall
