Silver, Chlorargyrite
Zacatecas, Mexico
Small Cabinet, 6.7 x 5.5 x 4.8 cm
An immensely RICH, old-time silver ore specimen from the famous mines of Zacatecas, Mexico that somehow escaped the crusher. There is substantial value of silver here, and it is shocking we have it today as back in the early days of this mine nearly all wsa smelted. Spinel-twinned silver crystals are abundantly and showingly embedded in a matrix of SOLID, olive-green/brown chlorargyrite! very heavy for the size at 463 grams or just over a pound! Ex. George Elling Collection.
