This little bear shows off the beauty of the rocks that were discarded as "waste" in the process of mining copper - a "porphyry" that was slightly mineralized with copper minerals, shown in the pale blue-green of the matrix. The stone is from the Chino Mine, Grant Co., New Mexico.
About 56 x 39 x 12 mm (2.2" x 1.5" x 0.5").
