Item Description

The Hauck label states, that this is float silver, meaning that his piece was found on the surface or in the ground loose on the claim and not in a vein. It has been subject to weathering, which explains its rounded form and oxidized color. Very uncommon material. Super-rich silver ore! 449 grams. valyed for size and weight, and the fact we get so few silver nuggets from these old finds coming to market nowadays, at aodund $1000-1200
