A gorgeous and aesthetic pyrargyrite thumbnail from the Allan Young Collection. A textbook, super-sharp and lustrous, "ruby silver" pyrargyrite crystal dramatically rises upward, like a skyscraper, from a matrix of smaller crystals. This very fine specimen hails from the famous San Genaro Mine of Peru, source of some of the finest pyrargyrites in the world. A classic ruby silver.
