This copper ore comes from an old mine worked in the late 1800's and early 1900's located in the Wasatch Mountains near Park City, Utah.  The area is known for its high grade silver ore along with producing copper and gold.

As you can see, there is a lot of mineralization throughout this ore, including malachite and iron pyrite. The three other photos show  this ore magnified 230 times. 

This rich and colorful ore makes a beautiful addition to any collection.
