This 12.5 ounce mohawkite nugget comes from the Mohwak Mine, the type locality for this mineral. Mohawkite is a rare blend of copper and two other very rare minerals: algodoite and domeykite. The surface is polished, giving it great character, referring to the interesting variations in shape and form of the surface indentations on the piece. The color is bright and silvery where it is polished, with hints of copper that give it a slightly bronze-like hue. The unpolished sections are shite and dark brownish bronze. There is no damage.
