Fine, and quite rare, 3.5 gram crystallized Silver 'feather' from the Grand Prize Mine in Nevada. The crystallization is well-defined and very dense, creating an attractive and quite sturdy thumbnail. Good specimens from this vein mine, now closed, are so uncommon that there isn't a single pic on Mindat. The photos here show just how good this thumbnail is.
