Mohawkite is only found in two places in Keweenaw County, Michigan, and this nugget comes from the Mohawk Mine, the type locality. Mohawkite is a rare mineral composed of copper, algodoite, and domeykite, featuring a color that is a lovely metallic silver with a tint of coppery bronze, which is made brighter by the smoothly polished surface. Its rounded shape and highly textured surface add to the visual appeal of this unusual mineral.
