The name Copper Ore means the rock containing the copper has enough quantity of the metal to be harvested. It is generally mined mashed together as a conglomerate rock containing mainly quartz, sericite, barite, and a long list of other minerals. Usually specimens of copper ore are smelted down for commercial use, but the beauty of this rock really holds a special place to rock and mineral collectors as well.
Due to the rise in COVID cases, by law newer restrictions need to be put in place at our shop. Customer traffic is now limited to 15 customers in the main retail area.
Face covering & use of hand sanitizer is required when entering the shop.
The museum area will now be used as a waiting area, and limited to 8 people. We ask that people please not come in with large groups, and please limit their stays to under an hour, so others can have the opportunity to also do their shopping. We will also soon install an excellent outdoor heater, to make it much more comfortable for those who wish to wait outside. Thank you all for your continued support and understanding, during these difficult times.
Together, we'll get through this!
