Silver, Acanthite
Miniature, 4.7 x 3.3 x 3.1 cm
Uchucchacua Mine, Oyon Province, Lima Department, Peru
A beautifully aesthetic curved and twisted silver wire projects upward from the sculptural matrix on this fine specimen from the Uchucchacua Mine of Peru. The wire and matrix are very nicely accented by pods of earthy acanthite with matrix. Fairly common around 10 years ago, these are now only available in recycled collections. Ex. Wes Parker Collection.
