Beautiful find. Lots and lots of stones out there. We will need a rough location that you found it. Also a few more pictures will help. A streak test would be helpful also.

Unfortunately it doesn’t look like silver to me. It would likely be heavily tarnished if you’ve not cleaned it up.

Zinc and silver display pieces. The silver is from the Alhambra Mine near silver city New Mexico, the zinc is from Mina Bismark Acension Chihuahua

Yep! I can see it now........ Sitting around the dinner table at Christmas, dad telling the story about tricking you into keeping a piece of Leaverite all these years. Boy! Dad was a jokster wasn't he?

Leaverite = If you see one, leave er right there
