This is a very flashy, polished nugget of mohawkite, a rare mineral composed of arsenian copper, algodoite, and domeykite that is found only in Keweenaw County, Michigan. This one is from the Mohawk Mine, the type locality. The color is a lovely metallic silver with a trace of coppery gold, which is made brighter by the smoothly polished surface. Its rounded shape and intriguing textured surface add to the visual appeal of this unusual mineral.
