A sculptural, old-time specimen from the famous Copper Country of Michigan. Crudely crystallized to hackly acanthite-coated silver richly protrudes from both sides of the massive, milky quartz matrix. The silver "feathers" at the top of the piece are classic Michigan silver forms. Old and excellent material from the N.A. Wintringham Collection. Weighs 130 grams.
