I hand cut and polished this heart shaped cabochon out of dendritic silver ore from the Langis Mine in Cobalt, Ontario. Incredible plumes of high grade metallic native silver run through the whole piece. Measurements in the title in millimetres. Weight is 39 grams, 195cts, 1.38oz. There is a stable, healed fracture that runs through the matrix. The metallic silver runs through that fracture and holds it together, which makes this yet another heart in my "healed broken heart series." I made this from the only piece of this rough that I have.
