Native Silver (Sheet form)
Eisleben, Mansfeld Basin
Saxony- Anhalt, Germany
7.6 x 2.6 x 1.9 CM (cabinet)
price: $120


One of the more odd forms of Silver are these thin sheets, almost like a Silver foil found in narrow seams of Slate. Very old material, these were mostly extracted in the early 1900's, the locality is a German classic. The Slate matrix is Copper bearing which is an unusual host for Silver anyplace. The Silver leaf is partly peeling from the matrix and shows the delicate form, being under .05MM thick.
