Large Cabinet, 33.0 x 32.0 x 17.5 cm
Star of Congo Mine, Democratic Republic of Congo
Ex. Bruce Oreck
Quite simply, an INCREDIBLE large specimen weighing in at over 50 pounds of solid heterogenite, perhaps more than all other specimens I have seen, combined! This is from an old African find, and made its way into the noted collection of cabinet pieces of "best of species," in the Bruce Oreck collection, by the mid 1990s. After that, it disappeared for almost 20 years until recently. This piece has a fantastical 3-dimensionality in person, as well as being just a significant example (maybe the most significant?) example of the species. Price on Request. Joe Budd photos.
