Caption: Dendritic copper mineral. 19th-century illustration of a mineral specimen with dendritic (branching) formations of copper in its native (elemental) form. Copper is one of the few metals to occur as a natural mineral. Native copper was an important source of copper from pre-historic times onwards. This artwork, dated 1803, is from 'British Mineralogy', issued between 1802 and 1817 by British naturalist James Sowerby (1757-1822).
