This creamy-white dolomite is richly laced with native silver that has a thin coating of nickeline and breithauptite. The silver is mostly present as clots and veinlets with just a little crystallized silver. The specimen is sawn on one side to show the mineralogical textures very well. The reverse shows just native silver protruding from the dolomite and a greenish secondary product of the nickel minerals. Beautiful specimen from an unusual location!
