Description

One fact I have to mention before the description of the piece: There are serious discussions if this kind of material from Imiter Mine is natural or manmade. This decision is up to you, but if there are any doubts of an auction winner (of such an item) in the future, it will be no justification to return the piece. In any case this are superb Silver wires with a beautiful patina and metallic sheena exposed atop of a fine, crystallized cluster of Acanthite. In every way a very aesthetic specimen.
