Native Silver on Acanthite
Wutong Mine, Liubao, Cangwu Co. Wuzoh Pref.
Guangxi Autonomous Region,
3.2 x 2 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
An exceptional silver / acanthite from an unusual locality in China better known for Rhodochrosites . This has very well formed acanthites (largest reaches 1 cm) that host a mass of silver wires of several forms. A very nice silver in general and the very best I have seen from this locale. This can be displayed to feature either the silver or the acanthites, both are well presented. 2007 find.
