A well-crystallized and very aesthetic Silver specimen from the famous Copper Country of Michigan, especially for the drama and style as a full thumbnail specimen. This beautiful, arborescent piece is a superb thumbnail composed of numerous, well formed, elongate and arborescent Silver crystals diverging from two areas at the base in close proximity to each other. The crystals branch out from these two areas and parts coalesce quickly as they develop into arborescent forms composed of extended Silver crystals that display a handsome patina in places and a bright metallic silvery luster in other areas. The shallow arching Silvers vary in length from a few millimeters up to 2 cm. This piece looks good all the way around and is complete with absolutely no damage. it has a mass of 3.7g (0.49 oz).
