Item Description

The Hongda mine has been providing collectors with some superb Silver and Silver/Acanthite specimens for several years now. This miniature specimen is a lovely association specimen featuring beautiful, striated, curled wires of native Silver sitting on Acanthite matrix with minor associated Calcite. I don't know if this mine is still producing specimens, as I have seen very little on the market recently, so if you've always wanted one of these attractive contemporary classics, don't miss out on this cute display piece. No damage and very showy! From the worldwide thumbnail / miniature collection of Irv Brown.
