Silver, elongated spinel-twin, floater
stock #21.FC-011
Batopilas, Andres del Rio District
Chihuahua, Mexico
3.9 x .8 x .6 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $660

A superb older specimen from the great Silver discoveries at Batopillas. Ex Behier collection, this is textbook perfect example of a single elongated, twisted spinel-twin crystal with a secondary addition of a few smaller crystals like a crown or hat. This looks a bit like a palm tree from some angles. Close exam shows the shaft or trunk has the herringbone form visible which is characteristic of this locality. In perfect condition the specimen displays well on every angle. Small but with great display impact.

Silver with Calcite
stock #A7-186-(1241)
Batopilas, Andres del Rio District
Chihuahua, Mexico
4 x 3.1 x 2.1 CM (miniature)
price: $350
Spring update

A very delicate cluster of wires, herringbone crystals and tiny spinel twins of native Silver. From the now classic locale of Batopilas, this has several small bits of adhering Calcite much like ornaments on tree branches. Due to the fragility of this piece it is best to make a by hand delivery or we will ship in soap powder, insured. Ex Larry White collection.
