Mineral Specimen #4644 Copper Included in Calcite
Keweenaw Peninsual, Upper Peninsula, Michigan
3.9 x 3 x 2 cm
A mass of Calcite crystals with inclusions of brightly colored Copper. The Calcite is clear with a high glassy luster. The Copper is best observed in one particularly clear crystal which is on the side of the specimen. This crystal is orientated perpendicularly from the rest of the Calcite crystals. The Copper can be best observed from the side (as depicted in the next to last photo). There is also Copper which is not included within the Calcite most of which has a dark tarnish.
Flaws: Some minor bruising on a few of the crystals included the most predominate one.
