It is difficult to get just copper chisel chips anymore. This specimen with both copper and silver is unique. As shown in the photos there is a generous amount of silver. This piece was acquired from the collection of John Perona in August of 2014. I in turn purchased it from Michigan collector, Ed Coleman, last week. It is from the Cliff Mine, Keweenaw County, Michigan.
I have seldom seen these interesting pseudomorphs. The rosette has a wonderful copper patine on it with isolated showings of green Malachite. There is no damage or any obvious point of attachment. The specimen is from the Chino Mine, Santa Rita, Grant Co., New Mexico.
