Small Cabinet, 6.1 x 4.6 x 3.1 cm
Cliff Mine, Keweenaw County, Michigan, USA

A large, solid specimen of pure native silver, with very bright and sharp crystals flaring from the top of the specimen like flames. It is dramatic in person! This piece is complete on both sides. It masses 137 grams. Most such specimens are old pieces from the heyday of the distract, mid 1800s to early 1900s, though sadly there is no way now to be sure when this came out. It is said to be from the Cliff mine, by attribution to style and habit. ex Ed David collection
