Datolite Wrapped in Copper

2" (including a .50" bail) x .25" x  1"

Datolite is a borosilicate mineral whose most common occurrence is in vesicles of basaltic lavas; also present in some hydrothermal veins. In Michigan, datolite occurs only in the native copper deposits and their host rocks in the Northern Peninsula. It is present in most of the amygdaloids, especially in brecciated amygdaloidal lodes, including those found in the Pewabic, Osceola, Isle Royale, and Evergreen Mines. This specimen came out of the Delaware Mine; it has a natural blue gray color spectrum with red-orange & white inclusions.
