Item Description

Mohawkite, a rare compound of silver, copper, arsenic, cobalt, nickle and iron, is found only one place in the world - in the Mohawk-Ahmeek area of Keweenaw County in Michigan (making this obviously the Type Locality). This sculptural 4.6-ounce or 132 gram nugget has been polished to show its pretty silvery tone with a strong hint of gold. A few years back we acquired the only available stash we know about of this material, which was mined in the 1950s. It had been sitting in a garage for a long, long time.
