The Native Silver is associated with cleavages of Argentiferous Galena from Wheal Herland, Cornwall, England.

The Silver deposit occurred at the intersection of the Convocation cross-course vein and the main Manor Old Lode in 1799, there was also similar occurrence in the Rusty cross-course). A rare specimen of Native Silver from this old Copper mine.
