MIN#SILVER-1 NEW!

Incredible specimen featuring wires of Native Silver on Native Silver with Acanthite!
Specimens of Native Silver from the Freiberg District are always in demand but specimens with
the arborescent structure and superb aesthetics as this one are few and far between. This specimen
was obviously hand picked by Dr. Wilke for its beautiful appearance and exceptional balance. I was
thrilled to be among the first to see it and acquire it for presentation here on the website. The wires
are solid and firm with a curling structure that is among the best I have ever seen in the miniature
size range. The surfaces are lustrous and striated with an original antique patina, top to bottom.
If you are searching for a fine German Wire Silver for your collection, you need look no further.
From the Himmelsfürst Mine, Brand-Erbisdorf, Freiberg District, Erzgebirge, Saxony, Germany.
Measures 8.5 cm by 8 cm by 6.5 cm in total size.

MIN#SILVER-2 NEW!

Exceptional Native Silver wires with Acanthite crystals and on Silver matrix!
This is a MAJOR Native Silver and one of the finest I've ever seen from the Hongda Mine!
First of all, it's an impressive small cabinet in size. Secondly, the Native Silver - Acanthite base gives
rise to over a dozen wires, all curling upwards like flames of a fire. The wires are highly lustrous and
brilliant with some displaying a secondary crystallization atop the striated surfaces. It appears that
small Silver crystals began to form at some point atop some of the wires, giving them a serious amount
of sparkle to go with the noticeable luster. The base of the specimen is mostly Native Silver with some
scattered Acanthite crystals and Acanthite micro-crystals. There also appears to be a greenish mineral
along the left back side wires that may be Sphalerite. The surface patina is a beautiful golden-brown.
From the Hongda Mine, Xiaoqinggou Ag-Mn deposit, Lingqiu Co., Datong Prefecture, Shanxi Province, China.

MIN#SILVER-3 Sold!

Spectacular Native Wire Silver on Calcite matrix!
This specimen is from the famous Kongsberg Mining District and it represents one of the
finest small cabinet sized specimens I've seen in a long time! The specimen can be displayed
from either side and features thick ropes of Native Silver on Calcite which turn into fine, lustrous
wires. The wires on the far left twist and turn their way upwards to a height of 6 cm above the matrix.
The luster is intense and the light antiquish patina is wonderful. I rate this specimen very highly. If
you're looking for a fine Kongsberg Silver for your cabinet, this is one of the finest in this size range.

MIN#SILVER-4 NEW!

Incredibly aesthetic specimen of Native Wire Silver!
When it comes to fine Native Wire Silver specimens from Freiberg, this specimen is literally a work of art!
With a wonderful balance and its stunning eye appeal, this rates as one of the most attactive (and unique)
specimens I've ever seen or offered on the website. The base is composed of dozens of thin Silver wires
which nest together before giving rise to nearly a dozen twisting wires of various sizes which climb upwards.
The thickest Silver wire is actually quite thick at 1 cm and can be seen to the far right, just above the base.
It also sprouts upwards in the form of thinner wires on the right side where it is joined by numerous others!
From the Himmelsfürst Mine, Freiberg District, Erzgebirge, Saxony, Germany.

MIN#SILVER-5 NEW!

Brilliant and quite exceptional crystalline Native Silver in white Calcite on matrix!
This is one of the finest Moroccan Silvers I've seen from Bou Azer. Not only is the crystalline structure
bright and lustrous, but it also sits atop the bright white Calcite which sits atop host matrix rock. I can't recall
seeing another on matrix Silver from this locality. The specimens I've seen in the past come with the Calcite
but not the hard rock matrix. The eye appeal of this specimen is superb with the transition from lustrous Silver
to white Calcite to gray matrix. Whoever did the trimming on this specimen did an excellent job. I love this piece!

Exceptional miniature of Native Silver wires rising up atop Calcite matrix!
Silvers from the famous Kongsberg Mine just look different. They have class and presence

features twisting wires and a brilliant surface luster. The two largest wires rise upwards like
Viking horns and the entire specimen is covered with thick Silver wires. Aesthetic and classic!

MIN#SILVER-7 NEW!

Incredibly aesthetic specimen featuring crystals of Native Silver on Native Copper!
I call this circa 1880's specimen the Silver spinel-twin Pine Tree on Copper Mountain.
This is one of the finest examples of arborescent Silver from Michigan that I've ever seen.
The crystals are bright and lustrous, measuring to 2 cm in length, and display smooth surfaces
as opposed to the more common gritty Silver crystals I often see from this locality. They are
mostly spinel-twins and when visually taken as a whole, look exactly like a tree, most likely
a northern white pine. The Native Copper looks like rolling hills and the stark separation
between the Silver and Copper is stunning. This specimen was acquired from the original
owners who are the decendants of the miner who brought the piece out of the mine over
100 years ago and kept it as a keepsake. It rates as one of my favorite Michigan Silvers.
From the Calumet & Hecla Mine, Calumet, Calumet Township, Houghton Co., Michigan.

reminiscent of a viking helmet!
The surfaces are not only highly lustrous, but there are also
iridescent with shades of red, green, purple, and blue. The Silver measures 2.5 cm in height
and is surrounded by Acanthite, Polybasite, and other Silver Sulfides atop the host matrix.

Very aesthetic specimen of Native Wire Silver rising up above a Native Silver matrix!
Stunning specimen of Native Silver in true arborescent style. I can't imagine a more attractive, tree-like
Native Silver from China. The wires of this specimen are perfectly balanced in size and position. They sit
atop a matrix that is a mix of wires and massive Silver and all of the main vertical wires seem to originate
from a central point or "trunk". The patina is a lovely soft, almost iridescent color over lustrous surfaces.

MIN#SILVER-11 NEW!

Superb cluster of Acanthite crystals with Pyrite on Calcite matrix!
Sharp crystals and an intense luster highlight this very aesthetic cluster. The Acanthite
crystals are all positioned vertically atop the Calcite which adds to the visual impact.
The
largest crystal measures just shy of 2 cm in length. Some of the Acanthites display a slight
hoppering resulting from their quick transition from the higher temperature Argentite.
The specimen is in excellent condition with a back side stabilization along the right edge
to add structural support to the crystals in the area. The matrix is very well trimmed.

MIN#SILVER-12 NEW!

Exceptional specimen of Polybasite crystals covered by Chalcopyrite with Acanthite, and Quartz!
I was amazed when I saw this specimen! Large blades of Polybasite have been completely covered
by golden Chalcopyrite crystals. Then, at various points atop the Chalcopyrite coating, you have
a secondary growth of Acanthite cubes which are surrounded by a ring of iridescence. All of this is
taking place atop a cluster of slightly amethystine Quartz. This is a wonderful combination Silver!
The Chalcopyrite surfaces give the piece a sparkling brilliance that is very difficult to capture.

This is a wonderful combination of crystals and wires from one of the most famous Silver Districts
in the world. The crystals at the base measure to 1.8 cm in size. They sit atop one another along with
several shiny Galena cubes scattered about. A heavier concentration of Galena is visible along the
back side. Rising up above the Silver crystals is a curling wire measuring 4 cm in length but obviously
much longer if stretched out. It rises nearly 3 cm above the Silver crystals below. Very lustrous with a
light golden patina atop the bright surfaces. One of the more interesting Kongsberg Silvers I've seen.

Fine specimen of Native Silver rising up frpm Calcite matrix!
This amazing miniature not only boasts the very much sought after Silver on Calcite rhomb
appearance - the Silver at the top also forms a complete ring! This is easily one of the most unique
Kongsberg Silvers I've ever owned or offered on the website! The Calcite rhomb at the bottom
is mostly complete with some additional Silver inclusions towards the bottom. The Native Silver
rises upwards some 4 cm and most likely formed the ring around a now missing Calcite or additional
Calcite matrix. In excellent condition, this specimen would make a great additional to a Silver collection
or any mineral collection that needs a good looking Kongsberg at a price that won't break the bank.

just above the base, and at the midpoint of the "V". The color and luster shift is quite noticeable
and makes for great aesthetics. I see what appears to be a spinel-twin Copper crystal along the
right side of the upper branches and the Copper luster is evident through the reddish-brown patina.

Stunning specimen of elongated Acanthite ps Argentite crystals branching out from Acanthite cubes!
An amazing specimen and one that I personally find to be incredible! Argentite is a mineral that exists
at high temperature and when it cools, it can pseudomorph into Acanthite which is the low temperature
version of the same formula. These Argentite crystals kept their original form which could best be
described as looking like "fishtails". Lustrous crystal cubes of Acanthite form the base of this
very unique specimen. This classic Silver specimen dates to the late 1800's or possibly earlier.

and rises upwards some 3.4 cm before curling over at the tip to form a ram's horn. Another wire in the foreground
juts out nearly 3 cm to the left, twisting and turning as it stretches outward. Just below the wires is a large 1.5 cm

VERY RARE!! Historic specimen featuring Acanthite crystals on Erythrite (Cobalt bloom) covered matrix!
Specimens of this combination from Cobalt are so rare that you'd be lucky to see one in a decade. This is the first I've offered
in the history of this website (15 years) and I've seen no others, not even during my visit to Cobalt several years ago. Simply
put, not many large Acanthite specimens with their original Erythrite coating survive from the Cobalt Mining Disrict. Most
were cleaned or had their Erythrite bloom removed and that is a shame because it's such a large part of the region's history.
Erythrite, being a Cobalt mineral, is also the reason behind the town's name.
This large plate has been preserved since it
was mined in the early 1900's and the Acanthite crystals are lustrous, measuring to 1.5 cm in size. They are well scattered
atop the red surfaces. This specimen is a rare opportunity to acquire an original specimen from a great Silver mining district.

Rare specimen of Acanthite crystals with Proustite on matrix!
This specimen is loaded with lustrous Acanthites and ruby-red Proustite crystals. I can't recall
seeing such a rich concentration on a single matrix before from Germany. The Acanthites are
sharp and raised up from the matrix. The largest triangular crystal in the close up photo measures
.7 cm in size. These crystals are surrounded by red Proustites and some are even partially covered
by them. The Proustites vary in size from a few mms to .5 cm. Overall the specimen is in excellent
shape with complete crystals and good aesthetics. A few of the Proustites are contacted but this is
pretty normal for Proustite specimens and it doesn't detract. You'd need a loupe to see the contacts.

Rare specimen featuring Native Silver with Safflorite and Amphibole Asbestos from Cobalt, Ontario!
This specimen is entirely composed of Native Silver leaves and dendrites, nestled between crystal
balls of Safflorite and sprays of Amphibole Asbestos. The Native Silver is lustrous with a slightly
golden patina while the Safflorite is steel gray to dark gray. This impressive specimen from the
historical Cobalt area is quite heavy and loaded with Silver all the way through the solid base.
The Amphibole Asbestos appears as tightly packed fibers and they sit atop the surface of both
minerals as well as filling the concave openings in the solid matrix. This is a superb example of
the richness of the Cobalt area, one of the richest strikes of Silver ever recorded. I wouldn't be
surprised if there was also some Nickeline or Skutterudite in this very rich mineral specimen.

MIN#SILVER-29 NEW!

LARGE CABINET specimen of Native Silver in metallic matrix with Safflorrite!
This specimen is very heavy and incredibly rich. It could have easily been part of the famous "Silver Sidewalk" considering
the size of the Silver seam but fortunately it was preserved for posterity as a specimen. A large seam of gleaming Native
Silver can be seen extending down the top half of the matrix and popping out of the narrow openings along the bottom half.
A sparkling coating of Safflorite is visible atop the bottom portion, forming roundish clusters alongside the Silver. The
matrix is a grey metallic mass that appears to be Arsenopyrite with possibly some Galena and Nickeline in the mix.
This is a classic specimen of Silver from a classic mining locality that dates back to the early 1900's. It's also one of the
most impressive Cobalt specimens I've seen to date and definately the heaviest. It could be trimmed but I like it as is.
From the Langis Mine, Casey Township, Cobalt Area, Cobalt-Gowganda region, Timiskaming District, Ontario, Canada.
Circa 1910-1920's. Measures 24.5 cm by 10 cm by 8.3 cm in total size.

MIN#SILVER-30 NEW!

Classic specimen of Native Leaf Silver in and atop dark matrix from Cobalt!
I love these old time Silver specimens. This one dates back to the early 1900's and is from Cobalt,
Ontario, one of the largest finds of Silver in the world. At one time, Cobalt was covered with dozens
of mines and processing mills and was the source of 100's of millions of ounces of the precious metal.
This specimen displays large sheets of Native Silver running through the dark host matrix and rising
up atop where the matrix has been removed. It is very aesthetic with an antique patina atop noticeably
lustrous surfaces. I don't see very many of these old Silvers anymore and this is one of the better ones.
From the Cobalt area, Cobalt-Gowganda region, Timiskaming District, Ontario, Canada.

Another rare Colorado classic! Native leaf Silver crystals and Native Gold with Quartz!
The Native Silver appears as crystalline leaves which rise up from between the Quartz points.
There's a good number of them, making this one of the richest specimens I've seen from the
White Raven Mine. Specks of Native Gold are also scattered about the matrix, along with
various other Sulfide minerals. This is a rare old locality which doesn't appear very often.

MIN#SILVER-32 NEW!

EXCEPTIONAL RARITY! Unbelievable specimen of Native Silver on Cerussite!
This is easily one of the most incredible finds at the show. This is a specimen of Native Silver
on white Cerussite from the Bunker Hill Mine and it is easily the finest specimen of this material
that I have ever seen. It's also the largest since almost all are thumbnail size when they come to
market and they don't appear that often. Looking at the specimen with a naked eye, I can see
dozens of Native Silver inclusions sticking out from the Cerussite or laying atop its glassy white
surfaces. Upon closer inspection with a 10X loupe, I see intricate Silver dendrites and cris-crossing
wires as illustrated by the close up photo above. This specimen is loaded with Silver crystals and the
amazing thing is that it is SMALL CAB in size. Every other specimen of this rare material that I've seen
or heard about has been thumbnail or micromount sized. I don't know how many have survived in this
size range but I've not seen another so there can't be very many. This specimen is an incredible example
of the Silver-Lead Deposits at Bunker Hill and what can happen when each mineral separates into their
own form. The Cerussite is in very good condition with very few contacts. This specimen can be displayed
aesthetically from both the front or back and would look amazing if mounted standing upright on a base.
Circa 1960's - From the Bunker Hill Mine, Kellogg, Coeur d'Alene District, Shoshone Co., Idaho.

EXCEPTIONAL!! Tremendous specimen of Native Wire Silver atop a matrix of massive Silver!
This incredible specimen hails from the obscure Shaft #66 in Schlema! I'm told that this shaft is
actually located near the center of town and that specimens from there are quite rare. The wires pop
up from a matrix that is mostly massive Silver and thin wires intertwined with small bits of Calcite.
The wires that rise upwards are more like knarled ropes and they are all very stable. This is
easily one of the finest Schlema Silvers I've seen in a long time and would make a wonderful
addition to a Silver specimen suite or European mineral collection. Superb, aesthetic small cab!

EXCEPTIONAL MUSEUM SPECIMEN!!
Tremendous antique plate of super lustrous Pyrargyrite crystals with Calcite on matrix!

One of the finest I've seen from St. Andreasberg and one that has quite an impressive
provenance as well. The Pyrargyrite crystal grouping is incredibly sharp, undamaged, and
lustrous. It also still displays an amazing amount of red for a specimen of its age! Note the
reddish color of the crystals in the bottom close up when exposed to a direct light. This plate
is literally covered from top to bottom with lustrous, shiny Pyrargyrite but it's the main
grouping in the top center which is the main attraction. These large crystals each measure
just shy of 2 cm in size with some 1 cm crystals nearby. I love this specimen and can highly
recommend it to anyone who is a Silver mineral collector or a collector of very high end classics!

MIN#SILVER-36 NEW!

Rare old classic featuring crystals of Chlorargyrite atop Malachite from Bisbee!
This is a very rare and superb example of Horn Silver from the famous Cole Shaft. It dates
to the late 1880s-1890s and displays a rich coverage of green Chlorargyrite crystals measuring
to 4 mm in size! The crystals sit atop a matrix of sparkling Malachite, and the fact that they are
still olive-green suggests that the specimen has been well protected through the decades. This
makes it even rarer because Chlorargyrite can turn dark brown from prolonged exposure to
direct light. Easily the finest I've seen from Bisbee, with Chlorargyrite crystals on all sides!

MIN#SILVER-37 NEW!

Rare and historical specimen of Chlorargyrite with Malachite from California!
These fine tan colored crystals of Chlorargyrite are framed by fibrous green Malachite.
The specimen is from the old mining town of Calico, San Bernardino County, California.
Calico was established in the 1880's as a Silver mining town and at its height had over 500
mines in operation. When the price of Silver declined in the 1890's, the town began to lose
population. When the Borax operation shut down in 1907, the desert town was completely
abandoned and became a ghost town. Today, Calico has been restored and is now a park.
Specimens from Calico are very rare in the marketplace and this is the first I've offered.

From Calico, Calico District, Calico Mts (Calico Hills), San Bernardino Co., California.

Another smaller Silver "feather" can be seen near the lower right in the first photo. There's a slight
iridescence coloring the surface of the larger dendrites and several spinel-twin crystals can be seen poking
out between the dendrites on all sides. Without a doubt, this is the most impressive Silver I've seen from the
San Genaro Mine and one of the largest as well. Everything else I've encountered has been thumbnails or
very small miniatures. None have featured the impressive coverage and crystallization of this stunning piece.

UNIQUE AND VERY RARE!!
Museum plate of Pyrargyrite crystals with Acanthite and Quartz from Tonopah, Nevada!
An unbelievable find!!! This specimen was presented as a gift to the Philadelphia Academy in 1915 by
the Tonopah-Belmont Mining Company and has not been touched or messed with since it was found in the
mine pocket nearly 100 years ago. Large cabinet in size, this is a true relic from the earliest Silver mining
history of Nevada and represents the largest and finest specimen that I've ever seen from Tonopah or
any other locale in Nevada for that matter. The plate features dozens of shiny, lustrous Pyrargyrite
crystals with Acanthite and white Quartz points. There's a good deal of color remaining in these ruby-silvers
and many of the Pyrargyrites show red under normal lighting A direct spotlight really brings out the color!
Obviously this cabinet sized plate has been well protected during its many decades in the Academy!

Very rare combination featuring Argentite ps. after Galena with Realgar and Xanthoconite crystals on Barite!
Xanthoconite is a rare Silver Arsenic Sulfide (
Ag3AsS3). These rare specimens came to market years ago and
only a few good ones were available at that time. They've long since disappeared and I haven't seen one in
almost a decade. The Xanthoconite can be seen scattered about atop the Barite blades near the Argentite
which has completely pseudomorphed and taken on the habit of the Galena cubes. Red Proustite crystals
are also present on this unique Silver specimen, displaying a close association with the Xanthoconite.
