Cut 62, Twin Creeks Mine, Humboldt County, Nevada, USA
Cabinet, 9.5 x 6.0 x 4.0 cm
A large and dazzling specimen from the finds of orpiment in Nevada a few years ago that re-defined the standards for the species; they are unarguably the best in the world. This specimen features big (to 2 cm), deep orange/amber colored crystals, with super luster, and some matrix showing a nice contrast. This piece is in superb condition in terms of the bruising that you often see on these.
