Copper with and in Calcite
stock #15.1-892
West Vein, Phoenix Mine, Phoenix, Keweenaw County
Michigan, United States
6.8 x 3.4 x 2 CM (cabinet)
price: $700
Pre Holiday 2017

Esthetic and not typical at all! Native Copper in leafy tendrils holds and is inside very clear crystals of Calcite. The Calcite is in blocky cube forms with complex growth hills on some faces and colored by the inclusions a bright Copper hue. The Calcites are glassy and the whole composition is very attractive. Some contacts are noted mostly on the backside of the specimen, overall in fine condition. I have not seen another of this style in many years.
