- Mohawkite Cabochons
Mohawkite is a rare semi precious gemstone that occurs in only one area in the world, the Mohawk Mine in the Mohawk-Ameek area of Keweenaw County, Michigan. Mohawkite was discovered in January of 1900 near No. 1 shaft when they were mining for copper.
These unusual designer cabochons are a combination of copper arsenates with chalcopyrite (fool's gold!), nickel, cobalt, silver and iron and Mohawkite has a very distinctive metallic sheen. Mohawkite cabochons have a great pattern of metallic areas set off nicely within a white quartz.
Metaphysical Properties: Mohawkite is said to increase one's sense of purpose and willpower.
