Silver, Acanthite
Miniature, 4.0 x 1.6 x 1.4 cm
Uchucchacua Mine, Oyon Province, Lima Department, Peru
A sculptural, thick and bright, twisted silver wire from the famed Uchucchacua Mine of Peru. The wire looks serpent-like. Very few new silvers have come from this mine in the last 3-5 years, as the primary silver wire producing zone has been mined out.
