Phoenix mine is closely associated with Cliff mine at Phoenix in Keweenaw County, Michigan, USA. This horseshoe-shaped specimen of Native Copper has a thick central section, gradually narrowing along the two open arms.  The specimen is composed of numerous Native Copper crystals, many to over 1 cm long, which has been acid etched out of its matrix.  In many areas the natural patina remains whereas some patches and individual crystals have a fresh bright metallic copper colour.  The specimen displays well and is a beautiful example of crystallised Copper from the Phoenix district of Keweenaw County.
