Native Copper Mineral Specimen for SaleNative Copper

 
Rocks, Minerals, and FossilsFewer than 2 dozen chemical elements are found in nature uncombined with others.  These are called native elements, and Copper (Cu) is one of them.  Most copper is found in irregular, flattened, or branching masses.  Fresh surfaces are reddish-gold, orange, or brownish in color, but weathered surfaces are typically coated with a green tarnish of copper carbonate, called patina or verdigris.

Copper was among the first metals used by humans, probably as early as 10,000 years ago.  In ancient times, the island of Cyprus was famous for its copper resources. The word Copper comes from Kupros, the Greek name for Cyprus.

The Native Copper specimens on this page are from the famous Keweenaw Peninsula deposits of Upper Michigan.
