Barrel shaped orange with sparkling native copper semi precious gemstone Copper Rose designer cabochon 51 mm long by 18 mm wide and 4 mm thick.
A RARE semi precious gemstone cabochon material! We call it Copper Rose, but it is also known as Kingston Conglomerate or Kingston Ore.
This lovely orangey red colored semiprecious gemstone, with specks and veins of shiny Native Copper, came from the Calumet & Hecla Mine in Houghton County, Michigan.
The little black spots are the Felsite pebbles. Felsite is a very fine grained volcanic rock containing feldspar and quartz.
The camera dulls the shiny copper reflection in these cabochons-but it is very visible to the naked eye!
Metaphysical Properties: It is believed Native Copper helps with communication.
