Description/Interesting Notes: A rare, old time example of this prized "ruby silver" from Nevada!!  This specimen hosts a cluster of sharp, highly complex pyrargyrite crystals in association with... golden metallic pyrite crystals and some minor polybasite, sphalerite and quartz!!!  The pyrargyrite crystals exhibits brilliant luster with razor-sharp detail upon close study!!!  The crystals exhibit dark color with reddish highlights!!!  Old, silver-boom era specimens from Nevada are quite scarce and next to impossible to obtain!!!  This specimen is from the noted collection of Martin Jensen and retains its original, detailed label as well as an additional historic label from the Mackay School of Mines (with A.F. Holden collection notation on reverse)!!!  The Jensen label notes "traded from Tom Lugaski, Mackay School of Mines on 19 June 1990.  The piece was collected in about 1878."!!!  Much more crystalline detail visible upon close study in person!!!  The pics hardly do it justice!!!  Must be seen in person to be fully appreciated!!!Good luck and be sure to check out my other exciting mineral auctions on ebay!!!
