Native Copper: Locality: Ray Mine, Scott Mountain area, Mineral Creek District (Ray District), Dripping Spring Mts, Pinal County, Arizona, USA (Locality at mindat.org). This is a copper from Ray of a rather untradtitional form and of high quality, i think. It comes from the second collection of Steve Neely, who got it from Al over a decade ago. It came to me through Steve actually, rather than from Al with the rest of the specimens shown here. It is exceptionally well-formed on both sides, and can be displayed from either side with equal effect. No matrix (its propped on putty in the photo). One of the more unique Ray Coppers!, compared to many other Ray coppers I have seen! 5.25 x 4 x 1 cm.
