Silver, Calcite
Cabinet, 11.6 x 7.1 x 7.0 cm
Uchucchacua Mine, Oyon Province, Lima Department, Peru
An extremely rich specimen of elegant silver wires and ropes literally erupting from a heavy silver-quartz matrix. In person, the contrast between the silver and the sparkling quartz druse filling the middle of the specimen is really quite striking and unusual. It is a rich, hefty piece for the price! 11.6 x 7.1 x 7 cm
