Silver, Nickeline
Small Cabinet, 5.4 x 3.1 x 0.7 cm
Capitol Mine, Haultain Township, Gowganda area, Cobalt-Gowganda region, Timiskaming District, Ontario, Canada
This is a rich, 1.3-ounce specimen of silver in a natural amalgam with the nickel-arsenide "niccolite," from the Capitol-Siscoe Mine in Canada. It has been sliced and polished on one side. You can see that except for a bit of quartz, this is just about solid silver and nickeline.
