Item Description

A beautiful association specimen of what were referred to back in the day as "half breed" pieces, featuring a wonderful, sharp, well-formed crystal of Native Silver measuring 8 mm sitting atop bright branching crystalline Native Copper with minor green Epidote on matrix. A wonderful "box buster" sized thumbnail specimen of these wonderful old classics from Michigan. For reference, the label accompanying this piece states it's from the "Osleola #13", but it's a typo and almost certainly refers to the Osceola #3 Shaft. From the collection of Shields Flynn.
