Mohawkite is a rare mixture of several minerals including Algodonite, Domeykite, arsenic-rich Copper, and may also contain other minerals such as Silver, Cobalt, Nickel or Iron. It is named after the originally reported and only locality at the Mohawk Mine, Mohawk, Keweenaw County, Michigan, USA. Mohawkite is not considered a valid mineral species but a mixture, or alloy-like coumpound as described above. Mohawkite is often associated with
Quartz and can be made into cabochons. The contrast of white Quartz against the dark, metallic Mohawkite is very attractive.
