Out collecting in May with my partner, John Perona. I can't remember the year, but it's been a while. Spotted this just laying on the surface. Club had an outing a couple of weeks earlier and the dump had been bulldozed. Best copper wires I ever collected. The wires are complex and go in and out of prehnite and a sugary white datolite.
