Extremely rich Silver specimen with wire Silver crystals to 4mm all over the place. Then there is an astounding sheet covering 10 x 7mm, which escaped tarnish and is very silvery.  The Acanthite is nondescript - it's just black. Excellent specimen from this little known mine. A note with the specimen states the grade at 5,000 to 6,500 ounces Ag/ton!!
