$ 175
Silver with Calcite
Valenciana Mine, Guanajuato, GTO, Mexico

Two gemmy calcites decorate this 3 x 1.5 x 1 cm silver. The flattened wire is 4 mm wide at the base. It twists and curls as it tapers to its end. No matrix, but a very nice specimen of native silver from Guanajuato. Native silver specimens are surprisingly uncommon from this area, despite the abundance of acanthites, pyrargyrites, polybasites etc.
