This is a nice little example of silver wire. Actually, iunder a loupe it looks like a stranded silver wire, rather frayed in the middle where the specimen has a sharp bend. ANd while most of the specimen is silver in color, near the frayed (bent) area there are coppery sections on the inside, plus some areas of corrosion or possibly bornite. A really high power loupe reveals that this silver wire is composed of a number of strands, each of which resolves into many acicular silver fibers.
