Silver sometimes naturally occurs in a pure state and can take the form of wires. This specimen shows clusters of wires on dark gray ancanthite. The specimen is from Anhui, China and is discreetly glued to a polished black onyx base. This would be a really unusual addition to a collection of dollhouse miniature silver ware!
