Item Description

An extremely sculptural and aesthetic spinel-twinned Batopilas silver from the Richard Hauck Collection. The striking, rounded, herringbone-patterned, crystal cluster looks like a sculpted shrub with the trunk below. The patina is beautiful. The calcite matrix is a super accent. Exquisite material from the famed 1980s finds at the New Nevada Mine. Valued at $500-650.
