To really understand these very rare and unique agates, a must read is an article by Dr. Wayne Sukow in the November 2011 issue of rock and gem magazine . It explains about the rare copper infused agates of the Kearsarge lode, found in just a few area mine dumps in upper michigan.
Dr. Sukow was also one of the main speakers at the 2012 International Agate show in Minneapolis in July. Those presentations are available for sale at the Minneapolis rock club website.
I got to meet up with Dr. Sukow, and it was a great pleasure to spend time with him discussing these very rare agates. Getting Dr. Sukow and Jack Hobart together at the agate show was a real treat for all!!!

note! unless otherwise specified, these specimens are from the Wolverine #2 mine dump, Kearsarge Lode, in the ooper of Michigan.
This copper agate that is mostly quartz (about 80%). The other part is banded native copper and agate. The one half has a solid copper eye and five bands of copper within the agate bands, then one small partial band of copper. The other half has a copper eye with a white center, and I am not sure of the white mineral. The other half has 4 thin bands of copper between the agate bands and another partial banding at the border with the quartz. This pair weighs in at 4 grams.
Item #B4, cost is $25
This is a St. Louis Mine copper agate from Calumet Michigan area. It is domed polished and shows purple around the border and it has bands of red, purple, white, and clear colors. Purple is more of a rare color to be found in the copper agates. It weighs in at 47 grams.
Item #M600, cost is $60
This is a duel eye copper agate from the St. Louis Mine in Calumet Michigan.
Both eyes have a translucent outer banding. The larger eye has a quartz center with spots of copper and then thin bands of caramel color banding, then the translucent layer as the outer layer.
The smaller eye has a healed fracture going through it and it has two distinct areas of banding. It weighs in at 110 grams, and was not polished past 600 grit by the way it looks. It should really polish out nice, and weighs in at 110 grams.
Item #M606, cost is $25
This is a two piece lot from the St. Louis mine in Calumet Michigan. The larger piece has a long white center with red minerals sprays in it. The outer part is a solid pink agate. There is a thin healed fracture on the bottom 20% of specimen. It is very different as the 20% below the healed fracture has a lot more of a darker minerals in the white area. It looks like both pieces were only ground to like a 400 grit or so, and once polished will look great. The second smaller piece has lots of white/brown thin banding, which changes to thicker bands, then a solid color section then more banding. It is all surrounded by that unusual translucent white thick band. Both pieces weigh in at 19 grams.
Item #M602, cost is $15
This is a two piece grouping from the CH 21 mine dump. They look similar but are from two different pieces. Both are a lot larger than the normal agate found there. The larger piece is all agate with a quartz spot on the outer rim. The main center is more of a lighter clear/pinkish color with a few bands of white in it. There are multiple spots of red minerals in this area. The next outer section is a bit whiter in color and the spots of minerals are changing to a black color. The outer pink banding actually starts at the very bottom at an eye so small you need a loupe to see it. From there, the pink banding flairs in and out all along the outer rim. This piece was not ground at all, and whomever did a poor job when they cut it. I see no copper in this piece.
The second piece is smaller and it has a quartz eye and has a thin white banded area around it. It then changes to thin pink bands. There is two spots of copper on the outer edge of the specimen. This piece also was just cut and not polished, so will look great when polished. They weigh in at 39 grams. There is several wet spots as I tried to take pictures with them being wet but it did not work out.
Item #M614, cost is $35
Is two samples from the St. Louis Mine in Calumet Michigan. The first piece has two eyes, one is large the other is very small. It has crème, red, white, gray banding. There is one spot of copper on the outer edge of the agate. There are two micro fixed fractures on the face.
The second piece is one third white, and the remainder is pink. There is some white banding in the pink area. The pink area goes from solid color to light banding. It also has a semi translucent ring around the pink and white. Both were not polished past 600 grit by the way it looks. They should really polish out nice. The pair weighs in at 71 grams.
Item #M607, cost is $20
This is a highly polished and coated CH 21 copper agate. It shows great banding and the quartz eye has spots of copper in it. The specimen weighs in at 5 grams.
Item #M617, cost is $25
A two piece lot from the St. Louis Mine in Calumet Michigan. The larger specimen has a quartz eye with spots of copper. There is light colored banding around the quartz. The outer part is more banding. There is a healed fracture line across the specimen. The banding past the fracture flows and bands in a different direction than the other part. There is then that unusual thicker white band of a translucent agate as the outer part of the agate.
The smaller specimen has a small quartz eye with brown repaired fracture lines through it. It then has multicolored banding. Both specimens weigh in at 27 grams.
Item #M605, cost is $25
These two specimens are from the St. Louis Mine in Calumet Michigan. The larger specimen has a quartz center, then banding that gets darker in color as it bands outward. It also has that unusual translucent white band around it. It also has a very small eye of agate to the one side.
The other piece looks more like a quartz outer area, with an area with various reds in the darker center. The healed fractures are also red in color.
Both pieces were not cut very well, but once they are grounded and polished should look really good. They weigh in at 21 grams.
Item #M604, cost is $20
Another copper agate from the St. Louis Mine in Calumet Michigan. This is a two sided specimen, as both ends were cut. Great banding of reds, white and brown in the center and it is all surrounded by a layer of that unusual white thicker translucent band. It also has a spot of copper on the outer edge of the agate and the matrix. The flip side is half quartz and half agate. The agate part has a lot of copper spots in it. It is totally different than the other side. You can see mainly copper on the outer edge not ground. That will most likely be a copper eye, or copper banding.
Warning, someone did a horrible job in cutting this great specimen, and once completed grinding and polishing it will look super. I think this is a great specimen to show off as one side has a translucent ring, the other side does not. It weighs in at 7 grams.
Item #M609, cost is $25
This amygdule pair is in the basalt kearsarge lode matrix. Both halves have areas of white banded agate but they only extend partway through the halves. The remainder is a light cream color with a solid cream eye. Both halves has a spot or two of copper. The one half does have a spot of SILVER in it. Finding a copper infused agate with any silver is a great find, and rarely happens. The half without the silver also has another smaller half of an amygdule and it shows multicolored banding. Within the banding is a tiny cavity that has a reddish color, with a green color mineral in the center. This nice pair weighs in at 11 grams.
Item #B2, cost is $90
This amygdule is actually a quartz ball that is lined with very thin bands of agate around the edges, then there is copper bands and areas of copper throughout the agate bands. There is a bit of amethystine color on the one half. The bottom third of the set is non banded agate, and has a nice round area of copper in it. The one half has a top that looks like the top of a hersheys kiss. A nice set for jewelry or the specimen collector. The pair weighs in at 8 grams.
Item #B5, cost is $20
This is a great micro specimen of a wolverine #2 copper agate. The bottom part of the nodule is a quartz ball. Next to the quartz is another smaller section of quartz with two bands of agate in it. The quartz is outlined with thin bands of chalcedony that as it nears one end it splits into a Y. The other third of the specimen is divided by an eye of agate surrounded by quartz with sprays of copper in it. The banded agate continues around all of that section. Quite a bit going on in this specimen that weighs in at 5 grams.
Note* This pair was ground only up to 220, as I leave it up to the buyer to decide to keep as is or to have finished out. The copper in all the sections look to go pretty deep into each section.
Item #B250, cost is $20
