Product Description

Apache Gold Rough Rock Stone Slab

This natural Apache Gold rough rock slab is 7.5 inches by 5 inches and 6 mm thick.

It weighs .78 lb and is shown wet in the first 2 pictures.

It has 2 natural cracks in it.

This lovely material is known as Apache Gold. It is bright and shiny gold Chalcopyrite in a black Schist found in the United Verde Extension mine in Jerome, Arizona.

Located high on top of Cleopatra Hill (5,200 feet) between Prescott and Flagstaff is the once thriving mining town of Jerome, Arizona. But by 1953, after belching copper for more than 70 years (and about 800 million dollars worth!), the mine was closed down. Now it is mostly a quaint little tourist town. Due to the 30-degree incline of the mountainside, gravity is pulling the entire town down the slope!

Chalcopyrite has been referred to as Fool's Gold because it is such a bright gold color and the black in this material is dark black, creating quite a striking contrast. Apache Gold takes a high polish.

Metaphysical Properties of Chalcopyrote: Chalcopyrite is said to assist one in finding lost objects!
