Silver, Bornite
San Martin Mine, San Martin, Mun. de Sombrerete, Zacatecas, Mexico
Small Cabinet, 6.3 x 4.2 x 3.7 cm
Beautifully burnished tiny silver wires are nicely scattered in clusters or as a stringer in the eerily iridescent purple bornite on this fine combination specimen from the famous San Martin Mine of Mexico. The thin vein of starkly contrasting white calcite is a super accent. It is always interesting and informative, that the mine level is known (Level 17). Ex. Wes Parker Collection.
