Miniature, 3.8 x 2.4 x 2.0 cm
A HIGHLY AESTHETIC cluster of extremely lustrous, vibrant orange, gemmy orpiment crystals with chisel terminations beautifully perched on a thin matrix plate from the 2001 find at the famous Twin Creeks Gold Mine of Nevada. This gorgeous piece is from Cut 20 of the mine, in one of the last areas to be excavated. Twin Creeks orpiment of this quality is comparable to any worldwide locality.
