A delicate Silver specimen with branching feathery crystals and no matrix at all. From the Larry White Thumbnail collection, this has a few bright metallic areas and lots of nice dark patina. The last mine in the area closed down in 1982, the area is now reclaimed and abandoned, so this specimen is certainly older than that. In fine condition, the habit is similar to some Batopilas specimens, but the structure is a bit more hefty.
