Description: FINE NATIVE SILVER
Possibly Kongsberg, Saggrenda, Buskerud County, Norway
The tendril-like form of natural silver is fascinating enough as it is, but this particular specimen has the added appeal of the presence of numerous opaque white quartz calcite growths. The slender wire-like silver curls and twists around and through a solid mass, erupting at the top into thin widening arms of metal holding perfect little crystals like some strange fantastical tree. A particularly aesthetic specimen, it stands 3 3/8 inches high and is presented on a square perspex base.
