Native Silver
Kearsarge Mine, Houghton County, Keweenaw Peninsula, Michigan, USA
Miniature, 4.8 x 2.7 x 1.0 cm
Very sharp, arborescent silver crystals form these old mines! Most such specimens date to the early 1900s, or late 1800s, although of course small pockets were found later in the mines and the dumps and there is no way to be sure without old labels. This is, regardless, a classic old style and a fine miniature for the price of American native silver crystals. They are thick, too, not flimsy at all!
