Part of the top-front of this matrix is an open, exposed vein of crystallized silver with a thin coating of safflorite. The silver is in the "herringbone" crystal habit with parallel crystals growing off of a long silver crystal. Beautiful style! There are lots of tiny light green-white tremolite crystals formed on the safflorite and, in a couple of cases, totally coat the "herringbones". Interesting specimen!
