Taxco de Alercon, Municipio de Taxco
3.6 x 2.8 x 1.4 CM (miniature)
Dark Silver-Black mass of crystallized Pyrargyrite on a chard of matrix. Strong light shows distinctive Ruby red color on most areas. There are areas of "meltedlook" masses mixed with very sharp small crystals in textbook form. Fascinating under good magnification, the specimen is complex and has several habits present. An older piece from Taxco in great condition. We do not have an exact mine attribution, it is common from this region especially with older pieces that many small mines and prospects send ore and specimens together for processing and sale.
