NATIVE SILVER!!!!!  Splendid, hefty chunk of crystalline Silver specimen from historic, Cobalt, Ontario, Canadian mines. A long and thick tabular specimen,  exhibits soft, velvety silver metallic luster. Very small Greenstone  matrix remains on one side. This specimen comes from an old 1900s mine dump.  Massive Native Silver was discovered in veins in Pre-Cambrian Greenstones 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 and its very difficult to obtain today. Weighs one ounce.
