While mostly dull with an almost velvet luster, this copper specimen does have several areas that look like crystal faces, although these may simply be imprints of host calcite crystals that have since been etched away. Except for those crystalline areas, the color is a brownish-copper, with tints of red in some areas, and a more pure copper appearance in others. A loupe reveals that the surface is covered with fine pits and an irridescent red tarnish which yields (at different angles) both the velvet copper and the dull brownish-copper appearance.
