  • O'Brien Mine
  • Cobalt

  • Here is an interesting mineralogical texture! This vein of very dark carbonates, possibly fine-arsenide tinted, hosts silver in fine dedritic form and some re-mobilized into fine veinlets. Some of the silver appears sheared. The dendritic silver is coated by an undetermined arsenide mineral. Rich and interesting! Collected in 1917!
