Native Copper

ID: CC18966
Anyone who has visited the copper mines of Michigan’s Upper Peninsular will be familiar with the towering spoil heaps at Cliff mine which form a scree-like line along the wooded bluffs at Phoenix.  This great specimen of tarnished-bronze coloured Native Copper forms sharp, hackly protrusions and knarled wires emanating from a matrix of mixed country rock and what is likely a granular Calcite-Prehnite mix.  A sculptural specimen and a fine example from Cliff mine.
