Silver with Calcite
Delaware Mine, Delaware, Keweenaw Co., Michigan, USA
Small Cabinet, 6.6 x 4.0 x 2.6 cm
Ex. Dr. Art Soregaroli

A well-crystallized and very aesthetic, curvaceous Silver specimen from the famous Copper Country of Michigan. This beautiful, arborescent specimen is a super combination of feather-like, silver crystals growing on massive white Calcite, and likely intermixed with minute traces of Copper. The Silver has a rich, attractive patina, and the longest Silver crystal reaches 1.6 cm. The arborescent pattern of the leaf-like crystals is very characteristic of many great Michigan Silvers. Very good aesthetics, and better in person, I think. Comes with two older labels (one I recognize as an old label from an East Coast collector, but cannot seem to place at moment) and a custom base.
