Keweenaw Peninsula, Michigan, USA
Miniature, 3.3 x 2.4 x 1.6 cm
Ex. Dr. Art Soregaroli
A well-crystallized and very aesthetic Silver specimen from the famous Copper Country of Michigan. This beautiful, arborescent specimen is a super combination of feather-like, silver crystals growing on, and intermixed with, minute traces of Copper. Both the Silver and Copper have a nice patina, and the longest Silver crystal reaches 1.4 cm as it arches beautifully above the specimen. This combination of copper and silver, while not uncommon, makes for a superb miniature in this case. It looks good from both sides, and displayed at any angle on its side or vertically. It is complete all around. Although no mine name was attached to the piece any more, we would guess that it is from the Quincy Mine or adjacent lode.
