Copiapoa esmeraldana f. crested (Crested)

The crested shape of the cactus presents the typical fan-shaped arrangement that makes each exemplar absolutely unique, never identical to another and for this reason so much appreciated by collectors! In its normal form it is a rare cactus plant from the valley of Guanillos, near Esmeralda (hence the name of the species). Its olive-green stem, globose in shape and generally solitary, has a slight depression at the apex and irregular ribs formed by multiple rounded tubercles. From small white and fluffy areoles emerge thin gray-blackish thorns that adorn the cactus making it elegant and wild at the same time!
