Collector's Piece: Native Copper from Keweenaw Co., Michigan, USA
Dimension: 4.9cm x 4.2cm x 0.8cm
Weight: 28g / 140 carat
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 matrix fragments are a very nice accent to this superb, two-sided piece. A classic, old-time, Michigan Copper Country material which looks great 360 degree. This is one of my favourite pieces, it is way more beautiful in person as the rich copper red color cannot be shown in the pictures.
A high quality acrylic display box will be given for each Native Copper piece so as to well preserve its beauty and colors.
