Collector's Piece: Native Copper from Keweenaw Co., Michigan, USA
Dimension: 6.8cm x 5.5cm x 4.4cm
Locality: Keweenaw Co., Michigan, USA
A bright and dramatic Native Copper specimen from the Keweenaw Peninsula. The Keweenaw Peninsula of Michigan is a world renown copper mining district famous for over 100 years for its history of highly productive copper mining and its finest quality of specimen graded Native Copper.
The fairly sharp, highly lustrous crystals of Copper are in the perfect rose-red / copper red color. The embedded chlorite-rich and slightly pink colored matrix fragments are a very nice accent to this superb, two-sided piece, the pink color is caused by copper inclusions. This is a classic, old-time, Michigan Copper Country material which looks great 360 degree!
A high quality acrylic display box will be given for each Native Copper piece so as to well preserve its beauty and colors.
