Kearsarge Mine, Kearsarge, Houghton Co., Michigan, USA
Miniature, 4.0 x 2.6 x 2.0 cm
A sharp silver miniature with extremely sharp crystals sticking out from a central stalk. Complete all around, except on the back side where it is contacted. Amazingly, it stands on its own, balanced by the crystals at its base! This is a very 3-dimensional piece. From the thumbnail/mini suite of Gene Meieran's native elements collection, though originally obtained by him in trade from the Seaman Museum. Weight = 26 grams 4 x 2.6 x 2 cm
