Item Description

Mineral specimens of any variety are UNCOMMON and SELDOM AVAILABLE from the much less well-known Bristol Mine of Lincoln County, Nevada. This showy and excellent, sturdy CABINET specimen is a SOLID, layered crust of lustrous, acicular, primary malachite crystals. The specimen has an unusual sintered look and feel to it. I have never seen a specimen from this locality before. Ex Robert Jenkins Collection.
