In Michigan's copper mines, copper is often found loose in the veins, when the calcite has naturally dissolved. This material is given the name float copper. This is a great example of this formation, with its bright orange red color, like a shiny new penny. There is some rough crystallization on this fine piece, which is free of any damage.
