Toenail, 3.2 x 2.0 x 1.6 cm

Exceptional miniature cluster of cherry-red, well-crystallized proustite from one of the great European locales, though we see few on the market. This cluster of "ruby silver" is elegant and sparkling, rather than the usual dull lumpy mass of dark proustite. This well-formed, submetallic, dark red cluster boasts a main crystal that is 1.4cm across that is gemmy and glows a rich ruby red when backlit
