This is an excellent silver leaf, showing how silver can be found as flat leafs in cracks in a host rock. The silver is amost perfectly flat (although with a rough texture); I suspect that the curve and fold at one corner were formed when the specimen was harvested. While a dusting of the black host rock remains embedded in the surface, the silver still manages a silver metallic shine.
