Silver on Ore
Llallagua, La Joya district, Cercado Province, Oruro Department, Bolivia
Small Cabinet, 8.7 x 6.2 x 2.5 cm
Ex. Philadelphia Academy of Natural Sciences
For some reason, despite a wealth of silver inore, actual native silver is rare here and specimens from the old workings even more so. This piece has visivle silver upon the surface. From the William Vaux collection, donated to the Academy.
