Alhambra Mine, Black Hawk District, Big Burro Mts, Grant Co., New Mexico, USA
Small Cabinet, 7.6 x 6.1 x 0.3 cm
Ex. Kay Robertson

This slice of Silver ore from the Alhambra Mine shows delicate and tantalizing dendritic patterns of crystallized Silver encased in matrix. The Silver is abundant, and this a very good, representative specimen for the New Mexico locality. Attractive - more lustrous in person. This is a fairly rare thing on the market now, as most was slabbed and smelted long ago! Obtained in the 1960s
