Andorite, Zinkenite
Small Cabinet, 6.4 x 5.3 x 4.5 cm
San Jose Mine, Oruro City, Cercado Province, Oruro Department, Bolivia
A very LARGE, metallic-bright and striated andorite crystal on lustrous, acicular zinkenite crystals from the San Jose Mine, Bolivia. This is a EXCELLENT piece from this recent find. The andorite is contacted or broken at some edges, but disaplays well, frontally, and looks dazzling (for what it is). It is also of significant size. The zinkenite, also, is super-rich and dense for this other rare species. 6.4 x 5.3 x 4.5 cm
