Description

A tiny gold speck in white quartz from a rarely seen Alsace, France locality: Silberwald, Stosswihr, Fecht valley, Haut-Rhin, Grand Est, France.

These were ancient silver and antimony mines, started well before 1517 (possibly in the 13th century) and abandoned in the early 17th century. Attempts to re-work some of the mines in 1900 remained unsuccessful. Historic documents dating back to the 16th century mention up to nine active mines in the area around Stosswihr, both in the Silberwald and Lehmatt deposits.
