Copper, Michigan, United States; 2" Across

The Keweenaw Peninsula of Michigan is by far the world's greatest and most important locality for fine quality and large native copper specimens. This fine miniature was probably mined before 1900 and has a desirable original patina. America's first metal rush was a copper rush and started in 1835. Many antique specimens are preserved in modern collections as a result of a culture of mineral specimen preservation that was adopted by Michigan copper miners from early times until the 1970's when large scale copper mining operations ceased.
