Caption: Native copper. Native copper is copper found naturally in a pure (chemically uncombined) state. Native copper deposits are now almost depleted and most mining concentrates on copper-containing minerals. Copper is a soft, dense, ductile and malleable metal, that forms the base for alloys such as bronze and brass. It is also an excellent conductor and is used for electrical wiring. This sample was found in Michigan Keweenaw Peninsula Mines, USA.
