Small Cabinet, 5.4 x 2.7 x 2.5 cm
A showy large miniature specimen of drusy, botryoidal, orange orpiment filling a vug from UTAH. A small number of these fine specimens were recovered from the Melco Gold Mine, near Salt Lake City, in late 1990s. Orpiment is RARE from Utah and this is excellent material. The broken orpiment botryoids reveal the radial growth pattern of the orpiment.
