Item Description

A lovely miniature from the now-famous find of orpiment in Nevada that set a new standard of quality for the species. This specimen features very sharp, highly lustrous, translucent, superbly-formed, electric orange crystals of this contemporary classic material measuring up to 2.6 cm. Great quality all around despite a minor amount of roughness. Very attractive up close with that fantastic color! From the worldwide thumbnail / miniature collection of Irv Brown.
