CGM-Y8XSilver : Ag, Calcite : CaCO3

Kongsberg Silver Mining District, Kongsberg, Buskerud, Norway

Dimensions: 3.6 cm x 1.6 cm x 1.3 cm

Very aerial growth of curved (“wire”) and hooked native silver crystals that are very elongated with a striated aspect. Small Calcite granules are included in the Silver.
The sample, very typical of Kongsberg, is from the Leit Engman collection, of Sweden, and one of the added labels indicates it was previously in the Axel R. Andersson collection, of Uppsala.
