A rare Mohawkite stone from the Keenwanaw peninsula flashes its flecks of copper, enhanced by a greenstone “moon” over the south shore of Lake Superior..
Check out the natural history of Mohawkite below. You’ll be better for it.
Named after the original locality, the Mohawk Mine, Mohawkite is extremely rare and occurs only in the Mohawk-Ahmeek area of Keweenaw County, Michigan. It is a unique mixture of copper, nickel, silver and iron, making it a copper ore. Mohawkite that contains quartz is great for making unique one-of-a-kind jewelry.
Properties: The combined energies of the minerals which compose Mohawkite bring stability, balance and openness to ones being.
And here’s a little Greenstone knowledge drop:
Chlorastrolite is a special variety of the mineral pumpellyite. Like agate, chlorastrolite formed when mineralizing fluids filled gas cavities in basaltic lava flows. It is found on Isle Royale and in some Keweenaw Peninsula copper mines. Chlorastrolite, or “green star stone,” has a silky green, radiating pattern that makes it a special gift from Lake Superior.
Properties: Enhances harmony and cooperation in relationships as well as personal healing.
