A very rich specimen of lustrous, platy, red getchellite with yellow-orange orpiment in matrix from the Type Locality, the Getchell Mine of Nevada. Ex Ed Ruggiero Collection. Ed, formerly from Dallas, collected from the 1960s until 1987. His collection represents a wonderful time-slice of minerals available during that period. Ed purchased this piece in October, 1975. For the species, this is pretty rich material! 6.1 x 5.0 x 3.7 cm
