Silver, Copper
Quincy Mine, Hancock, Houghton Co., Michigan, USA
Small Cabinet, 5.2 x 4.5 x 2.3 cm
An old-time silver-copper half-breed from the famous Quincy Mine of Michigan's Copper Country. This showy piece is distinctly biomorphic, having a silver "head" with open jaws and a curled tail and hind legs. Green epidote adds a very nice accent. Ex. John Ydren Collection.
