El Mochito Mine, Santa Barbara Department, Honduras
Miniature, 3.2 x 3.1 x 0.7 cm
Ex. Jennie Areson

An important silver specimen from a rare locality! Two, diverging, thick wires of silver, to over 2 cm in length, highlight this wonderful silver specimen which exhibits a superb patina. This specimen is arguably among the very best from El Mochito. It simply has to be! It is a small miniature, not really a thumbnail properly - but Jennie made it mount diagonally to sort-of-illegally fit in a thumbnail exhibition case in the past - it is certainly too big to be an allowed thumbnail size, today under Tucson rules. Her handwritten note with the piece notes that this was obtained from Rock Currier, which makes sense given his travels and trading.
