This Native Silver is from the Hongda mine in Shanxi Province, China, which works the Xiaoqinggou Silver-Manganese deposit. This exquisite specimen is very rich in Native Silver, occurring as a rich and dense tangle of curving, twisted wires forming a nest of some 2 cubic cm with wires extending out and beyond.  The Silver has taken on a sooty-grey black oxidised patina, but many patches and subtle hints of the Silver metal remain visible, especially under low magnification.  The specimen is delicate and parts of the matrix are held together by stands of Native Silver.
