Silver, Calcite
Miniature, 3.5 x 2.6 x 1.8 cm
Balcoll Mine, Falset, Priorat, Tarragona, Catalonia, Spain
SOLD
Dozens of small, sharp, sparkling, bright, elongated, dendritic Silver crystals sit atop a matrix of white Calcite. This specimen came out recently when a local collector was able to liberate some specimens from the dumps of this historic mine. The Balcoll Mine was worked as far back as the middle ages, so the fact that anything remained (even on the dumps) is amazing. A beautiful specimen with great character and aesthetics. Ex. Brian Kosnar Collection.
