This specimen shows a calcite vein cutting Nipissing Diabase with and alteration halo on either side. Native silver dendrites, coated with arsenide mineralization, probably safflorite, are present along the length of the calcite vein. This piece is sawn on side and rough on the other for an interesting geological and mineralogical study!
