Copper
Title:
Copper
Continental Chrome PM 1992 Sep-17

Description:
First Day of Issue: September 17, 1992 First Issue Location: Washington, DC Although copper is found adhered to other minerals such as malachite, bornite and cuprite, it is the only metal that commonly occurs in a free metallic state -- a native form. Copper in this pure form was first used by Neolithic man as a substitute for stone. Copper's malleability allows it to easily be shaped into wire and, with the exception of silver, it conducts electricity and heat better than any other metal. Hence, the majority of copper produced in the world is used for electrical purposes. The greatest deposit of copper ore in the United States is found in northern Michigan. Here, along Lake Superior's Keeweenaw Peninsula, a four-mile-wide belt of native copper extends for 100 miles. This abundant metal is also found in the body chemistry of mollusks, arthropods and humans. In blue-blooded mollusks and crustaceans, it plays the vital rold of transporting oxygen in the hemocyanin. Copper appears as a trace element in humans and acts as a catalyst in the formation of hemoglobin



Wulfenite
Title:
Wulfenite
Continental Chrome PM 1992 Sep-17

Description:
First Day of Issue: September 17, 1992 First Issue Location: Washington, D.C. The importance of minerals extends well beyond their usefulness as sources of metals. Minerals such as garnet and corunclum are used as abrasives in modern industries throughout the world. Because of its high specific gravity and its ability to make "heavy mud," barite is used extensively by oil companies when drilling wells. Minerals have aesthetic value as well and are one of nature's most exquisite art forms. Diamonds, rubies, emeralds and sapphires are but a few examples of nature's elegant minerals. Although not as well known, wulfenite is one of the most beautiful minerals in the world. Named in honor of Austrian mineralogist Franz Xaver von Wulfen, this stunning mineral has a resinous luster and occurs in various hues of yellow, orange, red and green. The red crystals from the Red Cloud Mine in Yuma County, Arizona are the most prized in the world. Wulfenite occurs in oxidized zones of lead and molybdenum deposits. Very brittle and heavy, it has a hardness of about 3, and a specific gravity ranging from 6.7 to 7.0

The Collapsed North Face Of Mt. St. Helens
Continental Chrome unused

Description:
The collapsed north face of Mt. St. Helens after the major eruption of May 18,1980. The first oozing of lava from the dome inside the crater began in February 1983. At that time the dome was estimated 700 ft. high,2,000 ft. long and 1,800 ft. wide. A new lobe on the dome began to form with lava oozing from a hole on the east side of the new lobe. The hole was caused by two small explosions that sent columns of steam and ash 6,000 feet into the sky.

Variscite
Title:
Variscite
Washington District Of Columbia (DC), Continental Chrome PM 1992 Sep-17

Description:
No.92-115. Variscite is a phosphate mineral that occurs in glassy nodules, veins, or crusts in near-surface deposits. Formed by the action of phosphate waters on aluminous rocks, this mineral occurs in Germany, Austria, Czechoslovakia, Zaire, Australia and Utah. It is also found on islands where phosphatic solutions from guano--seafowl excrement--have interacted with aluminous igneous rocks. Most gem quality variscite occurs in an extensive deposit in Fairfield, Utah. Commonly known at this location as Utahlite, it is found in nodular masses as much as a foot in diameter. Pale green in color, this semiprecious gemstone is used extensively as an ornamental material in brooches, earrings, and beads. Variscite is often substituted for turquoise, which it closely resembles, but is more porous and tends to absorb body oils which discolor it. Cut into sections, variscite frequently exhibits color variation near the center because of greater density, and may display "eyes" of other phosphate minerals as well
