  • Canadian Lorrain Mine
  • South Lorrain Township

  • A larger piece of calcite-silver-arsenide vein from the famous "Silver Centre" of the Cobalt-Gowganda silver mining area. Silver Centre was a thriving mining town but is now a ghost town. We still find these types of samples down that way and they are characterized by rich silver in a creamy, sheared calcite. Very characteristic of the area. This one is a vein section, rough all around.

  • Bailey Mine
  • Cobalt

  • Veinlets of native silver traverse colloidal arsenides to give an impression of lightning coming down out of clouds. The colloidal arsenides are actually well defined! Unfortunately, the fellow that I usually use to analyse such things is out of business, otherwise, I'm pretty sure I could prove up several relatively rare minerals in this piece. Sawn one side. Very interesting piece!
