Fresnillo de Gonzalez Echeverria (Fresnillo), Mun. de Fresnillo, Zacatecas, Mexico
Miniature, 3.7 x 2.1 x 1.8 cm

The photos say it all - this is one of the most dramatic, sculptural specimens I have ever seen, period. It has incredible, ballet-dancer-like form and a high luster. It is complete all around and perfect. I am told this was from a recent find at the end of 2013 and it was one of only 2 pieces I saw at Tucson 2014, but I simply cannot verify this. I fell in love with it immediately. The price is admittedly not a bargain, but the quality of this thing is unbelievable. Nobody in my office has ever seen the like. Joe Budd photos.
