Andorite (exceptional large crystals) with Zinkenite
San Jose Mine, Oruro
Oruro Department, Bolivia
4.7 x 3.5 CM (miniature)
price: $1100


A fine and attractive specimen of this rare Lead, Silver, Antimony "black ugly" mineral. Until the 2004 find, Andorites were one of the rarer Sulfosalts and crystals were always quite tiny. This piece is from that discovery and unusually esthetic, excellent for the size, condition and distinct form of these crystals. The metallic luster and steel to brassy hues are as good as these ever get. Ex Kosnar, there are now very few of this caliber to be found. An outstanding example of this rare Silver specie.
