Large Cabinet, 16.1 x 11.0 x 6.8 cm

The Pohla silvers are known for their extremely photogenic herringbone-like crystallization (dendritic growth), which you see here in all its intricate beauty. The silver is embedded in and flowering out from massive matrix of silver and arsenic ore. To emphasize the size of this 6-inch-tall specimen, it weighs in at 4 pounds of solid silver and arsenic ore. Ex. Victor Yount dealer stock.
