NATIVE SILVER!!!!!   Crystallized Silver specimen from historic, Cobalt, Ontario, Canadian mines. Nice small piece, exhibits bright silver metallic luster, curious character.   No trace of matrix remains.  This specimen comes from an old 1900s mine dump.  Massive Native Silver was discovered  in veins in Pre-Cambrian Green-stones in Cobalt Ontario in 1903 and hundreds of mines were eventually exploiting the metal. By 1915 the mines were essentially exhausted. Some minor mining occurred later.  Today only a few countries have historically produced Native Silver.
