Item Description

This is a very large sheet of native silver still attached to some of the matrix in which it formed as a vein (you can see this chunk on the back side). This is a FAMOUS silver locality! The sheet of silver here can hardly be called a leaf, as that suggest fragility - and this is a THICK and sturdy sheet of silver. The silver has a pretty iridescence about it from the bornite coating.
