Ex. Kay Robertson
Two specimens of rarely seen crystallized Silver from the Alhambra Mine in Grant County, New Mexico. These attractive toenail and thumbnail specimens feature dendritic growths of metallic, native Silver, with these dendrites subsequently coated by Nickelskutterudite and then draped with white Dolomite. For the locality, this pair is aesthetic and excellent. The intricate growth is good in the pics, and even better appreciated in person.
