Thumbnail, 2.6 x 1.8 x 1.6 cm
San Pedro Corralitos, Chihuahua, Mexico
Ex. Jennie Areson

This absolutely classic Mexican material was found only one time in late 1968, and then never seen again! Spheres to 9mm, perched on a sparing matrix, make this a full sized thumbnail specimen. For a thumbnail, of which there were few enough truly great ones, this is as good as you can ask for. It has the sparkle and highest color saturation! In addition, it has a little bit of matrix and that matrix look is absolutely uncommon, nearly unheard of - and takes the game up a level for how this specimen can hold its own in a competitive thumbnail collection. It stands out, simple as that.
