Silver - crystals and wires with Calcite
Batopilas, Andres del Rio District
Chihuahua, Mexico
3.4 x 2.1 x 1.3 CM (miniature)
price: $190


A mix of jumbled wires and elongated crystals of Silver with some chunks of Calcite enclosing some of the wires. From Batopilas, a famed old Silver mine in Northern Mexico. The locality is known for the herringbone habit of crystals but other habits like these are known too. The larger crystals here have a more metallic patina than the wires and seem to be elongated octahedra with sharply pointed terminations.
