Small Cabinet, 9.1 x 8.7 x 4.8 cm
Cerro de Pasco, Pasco Province, Pasco Department, Peru
Ex. Philadelphia Academy of Natural Sciences
A significant specimen for the locality, in that it features rare stephanite - which I had not before seen from here - in unusual elongated crystals to 2 cm. Although much damage is present, there are also some complete crystals and the piece overall is very rich and heavy, almost entirely silver ore and stephanite/Its smelt value is probably substantial, aside from that its a large crystallized mass of stephanite!
