Description

A very rare, rich, well-documented type locality specimen with excellent crystals. The original analysis will be supplied.

Mining ceased ab out 1850 - so I can guarantee it's from the first half of the 19th century - latest!

You probably won't find another sylvanite specimen of this size from the type locality anywhere else.

Was in the possession of the famous A. E. Seaman Mineral Museum in Michigan.
