New Nevada Mine, Batopilas, Chihuahua, Mexico
Small Cabinet, 9.0 x 5.0 x 4.5 cm
Ex. Dr. Miguel Romero
A classic silver from this locality in style, but unusual in its heft, robust sturdiness, and that it stands so 3-dimensionally. This specimen from the Dr Miguel Romero collection was on loan exhibition to the University of Arizona Museum for over a decade, until my purchase of this collection in 2008. It was on display in special cases at the museum, and has since been featured in the book "The Miguel Romero Collection of Mexico Minerals" which we sponsored as a special supplement book (published by the Mineralogical Record in December of 2008) .
