Nearly all silver, this leaf has a dull, brownish-white appearance. Perhaps the silver is alloyed with enough copper to yellow the normal silver color. There remains a small amount of the black host rock that was otherwise removed to expose this specimen. Under a loupe, it appears that a silvery white coating (looks like silver metal) coats an underlying coppery metal, which I suspect is the copper/silver alloy.
