  • 3.5x2.8x2.5 cm
  • Largest Crystal Size: 1.5mm
  • $75.00
  • Batopilas Mine
  • Andreas del Rio, Chihuahua
    Mexico
  • This mass of dendritic silver crystals on rock matrix has has some of the calcite removed to reveal sharp silver crystals that are coated more or less with tiny, sparkling, metallic arsenopyrite crystals. Some of the silver crystals are coated thickly while others have no arsenopyrite on them. Also some sharp dark-grey, cube-octahedral, argentite crystals on the silver. Rich!
Silver, SphaleriteSilver Minerals, Various Localities
  • Item #27721
  • Silver, Sphalerite
  • 5.2x4.2x2.4 cm
  • Largest Crystal Size: sil-2mm

  • Batopilas Mine
  • Andreas del Rio, Chihuahua
    Mexico
  • Some of the calcite has been removed from the top of this portion of quartz-calcite vein to reveal very sharp silver crystals, associated with honey-coloured sphalerite crystals. The silver crystals are all around the edges and I think more of the calcite could be removed to reveal more silver crystals in the center. Nice!
