Boleite
Miniature, 5.0 x 4.0 x 2.3 cm
Amelia Mine, Santa Rosalia, Baja California, Mexico
SOLD

A full miniature, precisely two inches tall. The rarest habit of boleite is this modified, complex, style...and these are superb examples, which reach 1 cm and are all just razor sharp. It has glued to its backside a label from Wendell Wilson's original collection, which he sold in the early 1980s (paying for grad school, I think). He in turn, got it direct from Larson and Swoboda when mined in 1976 or thereabouts. It went from Wendell to the Minettes and remained there until Jim Minettes' death and the sale of that collection a few years ago - I purchased it at that time. A superb miniature of the rarest style for this unique silver species mineral
