Geology: Copper is a native element forming in volcanic rocks and sulfide deposits. The usual habits are dendritic and massive, rarely crystaline in the form of cubes and octahedrons. Michigan’s native copper is used to form these interesting sculptures which are man made on the Keweenaw Peninsula. Molten copper at 2200 degrees Fahrenheit is poured into straw which is immersed in water. The straw is burned away and the copper solidifies. On New Years day, according to custom, early miners used lead in the same process as a method of fortune telling. Good or bad luck for the year to follow was determined by the shape and size of the sculpture formed.
