Small Cabinet, 5.4 x 3.8 x 2.9 cm
Ontonagon Co., Michigan, USA

Glaciers crossed Michigan's upper peninsula severa times thousands of years ago, scouring the landscape and eroding vast quantities of rock, transporting it and redepositing it elsewhere. This is a nugget of natural copper that was picked up and dropped by one of these glaciers! It has been polished to bring out its penny-bright luster, which contrasts nicely with the recessed areas of the natural "antique" patina. This nugget weighs 5 ounces. 5.4 x 3.8 x 2.9 cm
