15PR03 Realgar on Orpiment
Quiruvilca Dist., Santiago de Chuco Prov., La Libertad Dept., Peru
10.5x 7.4x 7.0 cm
$485

A very brightly colored specimen of gemmy, prismatic realgar crystals in an orpiment vug.  The orpiment is unusually blemish free, and the realgars have been nicely protected from the usual excessive damage by their position inside the orpiment vug.

A very striking piece.  I have applied a UV blocking coating, it is nearly invisible, though a good idea for this type of material.
