Leaf-like growths of crystalline silver popping out of white calcite, all on top of a plate of acanthite. I've seen a lot of specimens from this locality with silver lighy draped over matrix, this one is exceptionally three-dimensional by comparison. One branch of silver is protruding upwards with a crystal of acanthite at the top, delicately balanced for a rich addition to the assemblage. Fantastic luster throughout as well as UV reactivity in the calcite makes this a standout specimen from a classic locality.
