Copper (Rare Habit)
Miniature, 4.7 x 3.5 x 2.2 cm
Osceola Mine, Houghton County, Keweenaw Peninsula, Michigan, USA

This is one of the most rare habits of copper: thick ropey wire copper. The style is characteristic of the Osceola Mine in the late 1800s and early 1900s, and this is an exemplary specimen because it has both robust wires AND displays aesthetically overall. It is elegant, and a good size for collctors...most such specimens are small wires on big rocky coppers, not so aesthetic. In any case, it is certainly as good as you can reasonably expect for the size, and has excellent aesthetics. ex Will Larson collection
