Description:Lustrous, silver-metallic, compound bladed nagyagite crystals to a large 2.3 cm are aesthetically and richly clustered on both sides of this very fine specimen. This an outstanding and rich nagyagite miniature from its Type Locality in the mid-1800s.The sculptural host matrix is contrasting rhodochrosite and quartz. This is a classic association, but highly unusual in such visually attractive specimens overall. This is an important locality specimen, very nice to look at, and for the price I think a good bargain to own one of these in any appreciable sized specimen. Fairly valued at $500 by the former dealer for two-sided richness and exceptional crystal size.
