Small Cabinet, 7.1 x 4.8 x 4.8 cm
Uchucchacua Mine, Oyon Province, Lima Department, Peru

A very stylized, elegant silver specimen featuring seemingly wispy ropes of silver shooting out from the matrix. However, they are quite solid and robust. This is a great example of the twisted silver ropes which came out of here in the late 1990s., and rare on the nice contrasting matrix. Superb for its size, these often tend to be too sparsely formed on clunky matrix, or too intermeshed to have great aesthetics.
