Toenail, 3.0 x 2.7 x 1.5 cm
Botes, Transylvania, Romania
Any hessite from the old 1800's-era type locale is desirable to my warped collector's mind, and for 20 years now I have tried to buy every one that turns up in older collections which I can afford to stash. The problem is, not so many turn up. And most are very expensive. This, however, is a rich thumbnail with a matrix association so it is displayable, and the price isn't bad at all (i think) for a good reference specimen of this very rare silver telluride species.
