Large, exceptional Copper 'Skull', a cast of Copper formed when Copper coats a rounded nodule in a conglomerate with the nodule later eroding away leaving the "skull'. This one is both good sized and exceptionally well formed (complete) and preserved. Many get smashed or dented or are only partial hemispheres. I'd say this one has about 80% coverage of what was the former nodule.
