Silver - wires with Quartz
stock #AC-379
Cobalt, Gowganda region, Timiskaming District
Ontario, Canada
6.9 x 5.9 x 4.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $760
Spring 2020

Silver wires with tiny Quartz crystals coating and encasing some of the Silver. From the prolific Cobalt area this specimen is fairly old, it was sold by the Schortmann Brothers in the early 1960 era. The Quartz undermagnification is a sparkling druze of doubly terminated crystals many of which have a Cumberland habit. Close exam of the matrix shows that there is a lot more silver unclosed under layers of Quartz. The exposed area of wires is a dense nest with a few slender hairs rising to about 3 CM long. A choice, delicate and esthetic piece which looks better the more it is examined.
