As an homage to this rare and very specific geography of this stone, I included a hand-sawn sterling cut out of the south shore. This dark stone has many dimensions of light and metal in its otherwise dark appearance. Check out the natural history of this stone below.
Named after the original locality, the Mohawk Mine, Mohawkite is extremely rare and occurs only in the Mohawk-Ahmeek area of Keweenaw County, Michigan. With a hardness between 3 & 3.5, Mohawkite is mainly a copper-arsenic compound containing cobalt, silver, nickel and iron.
Properties: The combined energies of the minerals which compose Mohawkite bring stability, balance and openness to ones being.
