Mineral Spot: Native Copper...

Well, I am finally getting back to normal. Following closely on my back operation, I had to have an emergency operation to remove my gallbladder. I didn't even know that I had gallstones until three days before the operation! Still, recovering well, and due back at work next Monday.

This specimen, although looking like something someone has dropped into a sugar bowl, is in fact, a specimen of native copper from Virneberg near Rheinbreitbach in Germany, and is one of a number of specimens that will be in this weekend's upcoming auction.
