Silver wires on Barite - classic Colorado
White Raven Mine, Ward Mining District, Boulder County
Colorado, United States
5.7 x 3 x 1.4 CM (cabinet)
price: $650
Early summer 2023

Vintage specimen (1920-30 era) of fine twisted and tangled native Silver wires filling spaces between Barite crystals. From the White Raven Mine, (Boulder Colorado area) Ex Wards with George M English type label. In fine condition, and spectacular under magnification this is a classic combo for this locale. Close exam finds a few Acanthite crystals and rhombs of Siderite, the Silver has a dark patina overall. Rarely available antique and very uncommon in this quality.
