Chloanthite (Nickel-Skutterudite)
Schneeberg, Saxony, Germany
Miniature, 4.5 x 3.5 x 3.2 cm
An extremely fine miniature with very rich, extremely metallic, lustrous crystals to 7 mm completely covering the display face and cascading down the matrix. very FINE example of this old German classic! In person, this is a very 3-dimensional piece and it is MUCH MUCH BETTER In PERSON as the metallic luster and form make it hard to photograph. Ex. Richard Kosnar Collection.
