RM2828   Orpiment

Quiruvilca Mine, Quiruvilca, Santiago de Chuco, La Libertad, Perú

Very aesthetic specimen that shows two generations of orpiment. One with an intense orange color, formed by numerous brilliant crystals. A second generation formed by crystals that cover the arsenopyrite-pyrite matrix, with a darker tone. A different sample from this classic Peruvian mine.

Size: 8 x 6.3 x 3.8 cm.
