Sylvanite, Fluorite
Cripple Creek, Cripple Creek District, Teller Co., Colorado, USA
Miniature, 4.8 x 3.5 x 3.1 cm
A RICH, old-time and showy combination specimen from the famed Cripple Creek District of Colorado of metallic-bright, platy sylvanite crystals to 4 mm richly scattered on all four sides of matrix and very well complimented by purple fluorite. Sylvanite and fluorite are an UNCOMMON and HIGHLY DESIRABLE combination from this well-known district and this is a very highly representative specimen. Sylvanite is a rare silver, gold telluride and Cripple Creek produced about the best, mostly over 100 years ago. Ex. Charles Hansen Collection.
