More Information:

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.
