Thumbnail, 2.3 x 1.8 x 1.1 cm
Uchucchacua Mine, Oyon Province, Lima Department, Peru
A small but EXTREMELY fine silver mineral thumbnail specimen with a fine curled silver wire right next to a perfectly formed crystal of acanthite, all perched on a bed of massive acanthite and smaller wires. The aesthetic balance and symmetry of the piece is just amazing, and I have never seen a Peruvian silver thumb I liked better. 2.3 x 1.8 x 1.1 cm
