Small Cabinet, 9.1 x 7.0 x 4.5 cm
Wheatley Mine, Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, USA
Ex. Smithsonian Institution; Dr. Gary Hansen
A superb old Wheatley specimen from the late 1800's, with large, lustrous, barrel-shaped crystals perched safely in a vug of gossan matrix. This is a superior, and unusually large, display-sized specimen with unusually large crystals as well! The combination lends it significance a lot of Wheatley pyros simply do not possess. Such are rare on the market.
